Additional Info : Constructed during the March 2010 residency. The name “Flying V” came about after describing the plan to our fencing contractor, John Fitzgerald, who helps us with construction. During the conversation John said “aah, sort of like a giant Flying V!” so the name decided there and then. Thanks John!
