Burton erected later in the C19. This consists of a short pink marble obelisk
with a rounded head, standing on a plinth with a semi-circular basin in front of
it and a fountain pipe above the plinth emitting a jet of water into the basin.
Towards the head of the obelisk is a bronze plaque of Burton's profile with the
words "James Burton, Founder of St Leonards, 1828. Born 1761. Died 1837." beneath
the plaque.
