The fountain was erected in 1897 to commemorate Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee. The pedestal with chamfered edge hosts four panels. The inscription is on one side, lion heads on the other three sides. A trough of flowers is on each side. A frieze of acanthus leaves is situated beneath the capital upon which there is a lamp standard with four decorative feet in the form of scrolls. The pedestal has a bulbous base with bas-relief extending into a fluted column with bands. A two-tiered acroter supports a candelabrum of four glass lanterns with elaborate consoles. These lamps offered the first street lighting in the village. A decorative floral design covers the lampstand.
