Glebe, horse trough

This planter box is located along St Johns Road, in the inner city suburb of Glebe. This heritage listed item was originally a horse trough and serves as a tangible reminder of when horses were a common means of transport. This concrete trough is not as fancy as the sandstone James Spring Drinking Fountain and Horse Trough in nearby Darlington.


  1. I still remember troughs from the 1950s in Melbourne. But ours were all pulled out. Filling them with plants makes more sense than destroyng them.

  2. An occasional sight to be seen here as well.

  3. That's a great way to reuse a horse trough.

  4. Historic and pretty as a planter, too.
    Hope you are having a great week!

  5. I love it when old things are re-purposed. This is a great use of a horse trough!
    My post features a hike at Mount Rainier Natl Park.
