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