After consulting the UH levelling sheets it became apparent that the original RLR diagram was prepared using the figures from the first levelling in 1987.The original benchmark '2' has since been destroyed. Primary benchmark since the 2002 levelling and stable through to the 2012 levelling is BM 4 3.656m above the Tide Staff Zero.
