Bellingham South African War Memorial
Drinking fountain with statue. A square pedestal with drinking troughs on each side supports a canopy on polished granite columns. Beneath the canopy is a stone statue of a soldier in pith helmet holding a Lee Enfield rifle. White marble panels on the front and left faces carry inscriptions.
Formerly at the cross-roads in the middle of the village, the memorial was moved to its present location in the 1950s. It used to have a lamp on top. Those whom it commemorates are thought to have all returned home safely after serving in the war.(1)
