Seated statue on a bench outside Eastleigh railway station
Created by Vivien Mallock in 2015, the statue depicts Charlotte Mary Yonge (1823-1901), the local author and teacher who gave Eastleigh its name.

Tim Lambert's "A Brief History of Eastleigh, Hampshire" records that in 1868 a new parish was formed to the south of Yonge's home village of Otterbourne. The parish was to contain the villages of Eastley and Barton. Yonge donated 500 towards the parish church and was asked to choose which of the two villages the parish should be named after. She chose Eastley, but decided that it should be spelt Eastleigh as she perceived this as being more modern.
