Possible 1GL bench mark on Scarborough Castle entrance
Possible 1GL bench mark on Scarborough Castle entrance
This bench mark, on the right hand tower at the entrance to Scarborough Castle, may be a plain First Geodetic Levelling mark from the period around 1844-1845, but without an accompanying bolt it is not possible to be certain. On the surveyors schedule of the time a cut mark is recorded '...on South tower, at entrance to Scarborough Barracks;' and although this mark does seem to match that location, the mark does not appear on any of the old O.S. maps. However, the modern O.S database does record it and the levelled heights of the early mark and this one do match to within 2".
