There are two plaques on the blue bench behind the statues:

But we hunted around and found a map showing all the Sustrans Portrait Benches around the country.

 

2018: We've noticed that these statues are no longer in this position. We've marked them as 'lost' but  surely they have just been moved somewhere nearby, or will return here soon. Please let us know if you have any information.
