Our New Concrete Mixer Planter by PROPS

The latest flowery feature for the Beaufort Arms is this venerable Concrete Mixer Planter by PROPS.

propslogo2015-x324wWith plants kindly donated by ‘Painted Tongues’ (based on the Westerleigh Road in South Gloucestershire), our resident team of horticulturalists from PROPS did a beautiful job planting it up.

Some ten years ago the mixer was used to build the house it now resides outside of – its Lister engine still works!

For all of you anoraks out there, the mixer was built locally by Stothert & Pitt Ltd, Engineers – Bath – England, Established 1820, the model is a ‘3 ½ T’ (3 ½ C.F.T. Mixed Capacity Tilting Mixer).

If anyone knows when it would have been built please let us know.

Huge thanks to all involved in making it happen, especially Tim from Watts & Watts Builders for storing the mixer and getting it on site.
