Public Standards of Length

Ordnance Survey Bench Mark
The small plate (marked 'G1692') is an Ordnance Survey bench mark. Similar marks appear on walls and buildings across the country. The height of each above sea level has been measured and recorded. Dating from the 1940s, this particular mark is a replacement for an older mark that once existed nearby.
Public Standards of Length
These British Imperial Standards were first mounted outside the Observatory main gates some time before 1866, to enable the public to check measures of length. The stated length is the distance between the inner faces of the two D-shaped studs.
