Georgina, Baroness Mount-Temple
Georgina, Baroness Mount-Temple (1822–1901) was a philanthropist, who spoke out passionately against cruelty and injustice. An animal rights campaigner, she was a founder of the Anti-Vivisection League and one of the first patrons of the RSPCA. She is depicted with a bird on her wrist and it is said fresh flowers have been put in her hands every day for over 100 years. Her bronze statue is on a fountain; the basin and fountain are of Trusham greenish-black basalt and the pedestal stands on a base of Ashburton marble.
