Lewes Ten Pound Note

LP £10_140x73 FThe LP10 in its new purple livery is intended to celebrate the fact that Lewes is now in the South Downs National Park. For a second time we found ourselves drawn towards a map-based design, but then maps are a very important part of designating what a locality – its community and its local economy – is all about. Everyone in Lewes sees the Downs every day and they play a big role in our identity as Lewesians. They also provide all kinds of ‘nature-gain’ services from collecting water to hosting bees and other pollinators, to say nothing of offering all kinds of leisure activities.
