I've a bit of a reputation for "duff" clues, but I'm pretty sure this one is good having checked it a few more times!

OK, well how about  Southrn Chamber - without an e ?  Or a couple I've ever heard of: Nuroths Chamber or Hutrons Chamber?
But there again, it may not even feature a Chamber!?

Close - but no cigar! The clue is, however, a bit of an illusion anyway.
