I'm just gobsmacked that I worked it out. Usually totally rubbish at these things.
I'll let someone else jump in as I'm even worse at creating them as well.

I think we may need a bit of help with this one - a further clue such as which region perhaps?  :)

Well this is embarrassing,  I forgot t was me who put the clue in and now can't remember the answer.

Oh yes, actually I still think it is a good clue.

It's a feature not a cave,

Oh dear, I must be wrong about it being  good clue, so an explanation,

On your head = type of headwear
pony prancer = person associated with horses
prancer! = rearrange the order

Meccano Passage which I think is in Hillocks Mine.      Holy site fails over time.  Mecca no pass age.

Over to someone else.

Nope. Its a cave name, not a feature.

And those with an up-to-date guide book may be at an advantage!  :)
