There is an Ordnance Survey benchmark cut into the north west buttress of the tower.

It is about 4 feet (1.2M) above the ground and clearly visible.

It is also 45.053 metres above mean sea level, which is 147 feet 9¾ inches.

There are other benchmarks in Chiddingly:  you can find them and information about them starting at
