(Formerly listed as James Burton Monument, ST LEONARDS GARDENS)


Situated within the grounds of Gloucester Lodge, north of St Leonards Gardens, which were the Subscription Gardens of James Burton's original lay-out of St Leonards, is a small monument to James Burton erected later in the C19. This consists of a short pink granite 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.
