Geocache Description:


This cache was inspired by Team SP. The original is in Wiltshire and we enjoyed doing it so much we thought you’d appreciate it too. They kindly agreed to my stealing their idea, modifying slightly and presenting for your enjoyment.
The listed co-ordinates are for nearby parking. However, the cache can be found within 800 metres of the posted co-ordinates.
If this cache proves popular I plan to do one for each decade. The plan is to place the cache in a location linked to music in some way, it may be a very loose link!.
To find the cache you will first need to solve the anagrams listed below.
There are 10 anagrams of song titles that achieved success in the sixties. Once you have deciphered the name of the song, find out what its highest chart position in the British singles charts was and transfer that number to the blank co-ordinates as illustrated by the example below. If the highest position achieved was 10, then drop the 1 and use the zero.

N52º (F-G)B.CD(E-I)
W000 (J-I)(D/B).H(A+F)(J-B)

Example
B = 'a shocker julio' which when re-arranged becomes 'Jailhouse Rock'

Highest chart position = 1 so B=1


A = FERVENT OWL THEFT EH
B = A SADIST EEL WHISK
C = ARSENIC LIFE SOME
D = FRENCHMAN AREA OOPS
E = A GENE KILLS LION ROT
F = COMEDY FLUFF TO GO
G = A LEAK LOVELY LOWER NUN
H = EIGHTY FOLD HAND TALL ALAN
I = CANCEL DANCE TORY
J = ALTOGETHER CHANT ALL WOW


Younger cachers will probably need to find an “old” person to help them
In the tradition of every great pub quiz the cache setters answers are final, so no quibbling!
So, once you’ve cracked all the anagrams; researched their highest chart position IN THE SIXTIES and transposed that number into the final cache co-ordinates, you will be looking for a 35mm cannister since it was muggled and the container was changed. Easy.
Please note that the area is frequented by lots of doggie muggles and walkers in general, there is also a mugglet playpark so an element of stealth is required.
There is ample parking not far from the cache, however it is not free. The parking co-ordinates given are for free parking and a pleasant walk, why not combine this cache with Pooey or Keyne for peace.

You can check your answers for this puzzle on Geochecker.com.
