Bench mark on Vernon Gate
Bench mark on Vernon Gate
This bench mark was established in 1851 during the First primary levelling of England & Wales, and was levelled with a height of 184.0110 feet [56.0866 metres] above mean sea level (Liverpool datum). It was included as a side level on the Sheffield to Birmingham levelling line. The surveyor's description was "No. 139(f). County Gaol. Bolt in front, at South side of principal entrance facing Vernon-street ; 2.25 ft. above surface of road" (p359). The prison site has now been developed for offices and housing (Vernon Gate), but the prison wall and this imposing gateway have been retained. The mark is 4m south-east of the gateway, under a railing.
