Surveyed against the Mean Sea Level data taken at Clarendon Dock, Belfast, for Northern Ireland data; Newlyn in Cornwall for data in Great Britain and Portmoor Pier and Main Head, for data relating to the Republic of Ireland, in previous times, Soldiers on sentry duty marched up and down from the barracks to these markers. They maintained a watchful eye on the street. Walk a few steps on. Look across the road where the other bench marker, similar in appearance is sited.
