Narrative

Bluff marking the S end of Hurd Peninsula which separates False and South Bays on the S coast of Livingston Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The name Elephant Point (q.v.), given by Robert Fildes in 1820-22 to another feature, has been for a number of years applied in error to this bluff. It is now approved as originally intended and a new name has been substituted for the feature here described. Miers Bluff is named for John Miers (1789-1879), English engineer and botanist, who was responsible for the first published chart of the South Shetland Islands, based on the work of William Smith.
