The memorial is made of sandstone with pink granite pillars supporting a clock having four faces. Three sides carry the dedication inscription SJ8993 : Dedication to William Houldsworth, a bronze portrait plaque SJ8993 : William Houlsdworth bronze portrait plaque and a drinking fountain SJ8993 : Former Drinking Fountain, respectively. The ground-level animal troughs have been removed.

In 1986 it was moved to the centre of a raised brick-paved area with seating, when Houldsworth Square was redesigned as part of a community programme.
