The statue depicts Charles Fox on a pedestal above three steps and a plinth. It faces outwards towards the road. He is seated and dressed in consular robes and sandals. With his right hand he holds the Magna Carta, and the seal of the scroll closely imitates the original in the British Museum. On each face of the pedestal is a recessed panel. On the north face, in Roman letters made of brass (two of which are slightly damaged).
