It's about as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch
In other words, the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 1.01 times 61 smoots.(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 61.70 smoots (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 61.80 smoots, and later converted to the metric units used today). The goal markess were defined as part of the pitch by the original rules of the game in the late 16th century, but it was not until the mid 19th century that the crossbar and the net were added
It's about nine-tenths as long as a Football field
In other words, 61 smoots is 0.9460650 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 1.05701 times that amount.(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 64.47760 smoots from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 5.373130 smoots farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
It's about one-and-one-tenth times as tall as Big Ben
In other words, the height of Big Ben is 0.910 times 61 smoots.(officially the clock tower of Palace of Westminster, a.k.a. Houses of Parliament) (London, England)
The clock tower of the Palace of Westminster, which houses the bell known as "Big Ben," rises 56 smoots. The tower has no elevator, and is therefore only accessible by climbing 334 steps to the top.
It's about one-and-one-tenth times as tall as The Statue of Liberty
In other words, 61 smoots is 1.1160 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.89610 times that amount.(a.k.a. "Liberty Enlightening the World," a.k.a. La Liberté Éclairant le Monde) (Liberty Island, New York City, New York) (pedestal base to torch peak)
The Statue of Liberty reaches 54.640 smoots including the pedestal. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top.
It's about four-fifths as tall as The Great Pyramid of Giza
In other words, the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 1.30 times 61 smoots.(a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (estimated original height)
The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated original height (without loss due to erosion) of 76 smoots. The Pyramid was the tallest structure in the world for almost 4,000 years — from its construction ca. 2551 BCE until it was overtaken by the Lincoln Cathedral in Lincoln, England, built in the year 1300.
It's about one-and-two-fifths times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree)
In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.710 times 61 smoots.(a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)
Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 45 smoots. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks.
It's about seven-tenths as long as The Shambles
In other words, 61 smoots is 0.690 times the length of The Shambles, and the length of The Shambles is 1.40 times that amount.(a.k.a. Maze of Twisting, a.k.a. The Great Flesh Shambles) (York, England, United Kingdom) (approximate)
The Shambles, a historic shopping street in York, stretches about 88 smoots. Several of the buildings along the street are over seven hundred years old.
