This prop is displayed in the car park of the White Horse, Brancaster, Norfolk.
Is there a known history for the prop?
the pub is situated on the coast adjoins the marshes. Is there a link?
any info would be appreciated.

You can just make out the bevels in the reduction gear so it's probably from a Bristol radial engined aircraft.

I agree that the Farman reduction gears make it a Bristol radial engine (and the perpendicular bevel gears make it a 0.5:1 reduction ratio).

The propeller type would make it most likely a Pegasus or Mercury engine.

Is it a paddle blade?

Doubt it as it's a bracket-type. Not sure there were any?
