A life-size statue of Charlotte Mary Yonge (1823–1901), seated on a bench, reading a book. The sculpture is designed so that members of the public can sit alongside her. Yonge was a notable Victorian novelist. She lived in Otterbourne all her life and was associated with the Oxford Movement and John Henry Newman. Yonge was an important benefactor to the vast numbers of immigrant workers and their families that arrived in Eastleigh to work in the railway industry. She was also responsible for giving Eastleigh its name. The statue was due to be unveiled in 2014 but was vandalised days before the ceremony. The statue was removed for repairs which delayed the unveiling until 2015.
