Why “Flying Monk”
Named after local historic figure Brother Eilmer, a monk from Malmesbury Abbey, who in 1010 repeated Icarus’s attempt to fly by attaching a set of wings to his arms and jumping off the tower of Malmesbury Abbey. Malmesbury’s flying monk and his attempt to fly himself into the history books might not have been successful, but he did foresee the Norman invasion following a sighting of Halley’s comet and became recognised as a prophet.

Flying Monk Trellis – where the idea came from
Flying Monk Trellis was born from an idea to up-cycle what was about to be a waste product. After cutting star shapes for company Christmas cards there was a colourful piece of left-over cut acrylic, too pretty and jewel-like to be thrown away. There had to be a use for it. So the shapely piece was taken home and placed in the garden where it happily made friends with the honeysuckle and added a great shot of colour. It worked so well the idea was developed further and the first collection is now ready!
