Good effort founding all of those "Bills", I wouldn't have the patience. The pace at which you are finding and photographing these, you'll soon be ahead of Derek. How many have you found out of the estimated 700 there are in AUS?

I hope Derek will be along soon to provide us with his tally.

Derek and I found this one on the way north on this year's SEQ Bananarama ride.


Derek had explained that he had looked for this once (or twice) before but it had evaded him. We went to the local tourist information kiosk and asked the nice man for some help. He was very helpful, he was also very niiiiice.

There's obviously an interesting back story to this idiosyncratic pilgrimage Nev - I gather that there is an assemblage of horse troughs all sired by the same trough-maker - is there something more to this particular pedigree of water trough? I salute your dedication to trough homage.

nice pics, so what's this "theme" you're on about then...




seriously though, being a sad and ignorant youropeeon I had to do some research about Bills horse troughs.

So when are you going to ride to get pics of the 3 in the uk ?
