Keeping up Standards

This photo is taken in Trafalgar Square, and the feature of interest is the brass plaque in the centre. That was put there in 1876 and are the standards for Imperial measures: One foot, two feet and one yard. I've always wondered if they have ever been used to check dimensions.
