Yup, that's the one. Your turn, Graham!

(For anyone wondering, the P7 is a classic hardtail mountain bike, made by Orange Bikes.)

Quaking Pot - what a horrible place!

Sorry for the delay. I've been a bit side-tracked, but try this:

"One concerning underground radon following close to Lakeland hill" [5, 4, 6]

Not such a wild guess.

One = I
Concerning = re

[Underground radon = cave rn
following
Close to = by
Lakeland hill = fell] = by Fell Cavern

Take it away Mud....

Try this one:
Charlie's steely warrior reluctantly visited this cave (6,3)
(although it requires a bit of local knowledge of the Dales)

Helps that I'm just over the hill from there :)

Anyway, try...

"Rotate semicircle and locate in sort of cellar." ( 5, 6, 5, 4 )

Clue time then methinks: This is the name given to the place in Iain Barker's "Classic Caves..." book, though it is named subtly differently in other publications.....

At least that narrows down the area!
I'm really tempted to have a guess . . . but I shall try to resist, as thinking up new clues makes my brain ache!

Close enough - the book has it as Water Icicle Close Mine (which is what letters the clue generates). Your go LadyMud!
