  2. johninmaldon says:

    I was in Marnoo on the weekend, and the BHT seems to have been restored and moved to the main street (Newall Street) next to a historical display.

  3. Alan Yule says:

    We were in Port Fairy in late October in 2013. Couldn’t find trough. After enquiry at info centre, it is now installed at showgrounds. A & L Yule and B & S Bills. (Distant relative).

  4. https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-33.998023,150.865313,3a,75y,115.7h,90t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sChuZreryoIjUUmRA3seUAQ!2e0 Here’s a trough situated in the left side of shops at Ingleburn,NSW. In the 1960’s it was located next to the railway station with a Street directory attatched to it. If anyone has photo’s of it in it’s original place would be much appreciated. Cheers Peter O’Brien.

  5. Graham Hickey says:

    Hi George, do u have any record of one being at CHILLINGOLLAH, I think I can remember one there. Chillingollah Vic. Between Ultima, Waitchie, & Chinkapook, it’s on Springfield rd.

  6. Eric Slater says:

    Mordialloc, Victoria Corner Nepean Hwy and Beach Rd, now used as a flower like box, just talking about this subject on Face Book before I looked up your site, good infomation thank you

  7. Don Weston says:

    The one at Agnes Banks NSW was removed earlier this year but has since been returned to it location.
    The one at Clarendon NSW Race Course driveway is still there and is connected to water it also has a tap for humans.

  8. Patrick Dodd says:

    Just learned about you because we have found one at St Ives here on the North Shore in Sydney.
    If you do not know about it we will send photos etc after we have cleared the vegetation and made it presentable. Happy New Year from Gillian and Patrick Dodd and Jo Harris – Ku-ringa-gai Historical Society.

  9. Patrick Dodd says:

    Following my previous have just read your complete list and you do know about the one at St Ives. We will clean it up and send you photos. cheers,

    Patrick Dodd.

  10. Phil says:

    i seem to recall one located in a park located in Parramatta, corner of Victoria Road and Church Street facing Victoria Road.

  11. VICKY Lowe says:

    One in Gillies street Wendouree is still ther

  12. salsta says:

    My father knows where the trough at the racecourse in Drouin is and I’m hoping to photograph it for you soon. However, we don’t know of a Green St in Drouin. There are Greenland Drv and Green Valley Drv. Do you know if either of them could be the right location or could it be somewhere else?

  13. Michael Lepp says:

    There is a trough at Buck Reserve in Donvale, outside the pony club.

  14. Shane frisby says:

    Thank you for making this wonderful list of horse troughs. I am no horse person by any means but I find this an amazing philanthropic thing to have been occurred. Thank you for collecting all this information. Cheers Shane

  15. Phillip Jennings says:

    There is a Bill’s horse trough on the roundabout of McCallum and Curlewis St. Swan Hill.Victoria

  16. joyce smith says:

    Saw Bills horse trough on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells. Uk. sunset, too dark to photograph, so came back to Brighton, photographed the one in Hampton street, added it to my photo album.

    • billshorsetroughs says:

      That is great Joyce wonder if possible if you could send me a photos of the Brighton Trough and do you know if it is a Bills one? george

  17. Merilyn Cook says:

    The Bills trough in Macarthur has been moved and is now situated in the old Court House precinct.

    • billshorsetroughs says:

      Thanks Merilyn much appreciated would it be possible to send me a photos of the BHT in ts new location.
      my photo was taken in 2004 a long time ago . Thanks George gemmill

    • Patrick Dodd says:

      Have you listed the one at Clarendon Racecourse near Windsor?

  18. John says:

    The George Bills Horse Trough at the corner of High Street and Parkhill Road, Kew ( near cemetery) has been turned into a neglected pot plant containing flowers and weeds. It was supposed to have been restored almost three decades ago by the local council and it contains no water in it to allow a horse or any other creature to drink. After all it was intended to hold water for horses and other creatures to drink from. It was not made to be a flower pot. I guess it’s like the saying “Flogging A Dead Horse” to expect it to be used as a horse drinking trough, even though this particular horse trough has a beautiful post beside it complete with a horse’s head and steel ring to tie a horse to.

  19. billshorsetroughs says:

    Please send me your photos of Bills troughs they are very welcome
    send to billshorsetroughs@hotmail.com.
    Thanks George Gemmill

  20. There is a trough in the Schramms Cottage Museum Complex -37.777964, 145.145814. See: http://www.rdomelbourne.com/2016/09/schramms-cottage-doncaster.html . and http://vhd.heritagecouncil.vic.gov.au/places/47149.
    Thanks for your Website !! Great work

  21. Sharyn Gavin says:

    Hi there, these people are my relatives and there are dozens of these troughs all over the place. There is one near me in St Ives in Sydney. Fascinating story behind them as well.
    Kind regards, Sharyn Gavin (neè Bills).

  22. Theresia Gailberger says:

    We were in Rochester and saw another BHT. I am finding them all over. I have told people about the story behind it on my Facebook page and hope others will follow my search.

  23. JL says:

    Hi George.
    Would you be so kind as to send me your list of BHTs?
    I have found a few lately and would also happily send you some photos.
    Also, donyou know if it is still anyone’s (rg councils’) responsibility to maintain them? Does eg heritage Vic have an interest? Some are in quite a state of disrepair 😦

  24. Sharon says:

    The horse trough in St. Arnaud is still there, outside the museum, turncocks residence and fire station.
