Maybe a bit convoluted, but try this;

Shoot many-headed monster with headless insect before singe enveloping decoration gives a feature in a northern cave (4,7,7).

Fire Hydrant Chamber.

I was led to it by the wonderful Les Barker and his monologue Jason and the Arguments.

Les Barker used to tour the folk club and festival circuit. He creates the most amazing comic monologues.  In Jason and the Arguments there's a reference to the many headed hydrant.
Or perhaps in one of his other monologues.

Ban-y-Gor (but if it's right, I guess andys gets the credit).

(I sort of came up with 'Holt-tan-Igor', thinking it might be an obscure Weslh cave, to fit the original letter count.)
