Geography and History

Bathurst is situated about 12 kilometers inland from Port Alfred, on the R67, in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa.

Many of the original settler houses and other buildings in Bathurst have been preserved, and there remains much of the look and feel of an English village of the early 19th Century. The Pig and Whistle, at the heart of the village, is reputedly the oldest existent pub in the country.  Later accommodation was added and it became known as the Bathurst Inn. Legend has it that it was nicknamed "The Pig & Whistle" by the men at the nearby 43 Air School in WWII.

While time has moved slowly in Bathurst, there is an increasing population of artists, and retirees who have chosen to live in this tranquil environment.
