Geocache Description:

Another sidetracked cache. Not a nano this time. Offset multi cache. Visit one site, get the answers and claim the cache.

The Pickie Park is a much loved Bangor attraction, and should keep most children happy for a while. There is a well maintained play area and paddling pool which are free, and Swan pedalos and the Pickie Puffer mini train which charge. Refreshments are available from the cafe.

On a sunny day this is a very busy place, but you should be able to rest at the cache location without arousing too much suspicion.

At the listed coordinates you will find a tiled panel on the harbour wall. The panel is composed of some 30 tiles in 2 rows of 15.
The rows are numbered starting at the top left corner and working down (ie, the top row is 1, the bottow row is 2).
Working across from the top left tile, the label the columns from A to O.

Using the clues below, calculate the digit, and place this in the coord to find the cache.

S - The number of letters in the placename in C1
T - The number of letters in the placename in A2
U - In O1 there is a two word geographical feature, use the number of letters in the second word.
V - The number of boats minus the number of seals in F1
W - The number of birds minus the number of boats in L1
X - The number of windows minus the number of doors in L2
Y - The number of letters in the placename in D1
Z - The number of letters in the the word in O2
