The memorial with a lamp commemorates the Diamond Jubilee of the reign of Queen Victoria in 1897. The memorial was originally a horse trough and fountain and stood in front of the post office. 

On September 23, 1896, Queen Victoria surpassed King George III as Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, but she requested that celebrations of the milestone be delayed until June 1897, the 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne.
