We are delighted to say the BRAND NEW 2019 issue Lake District notes have been released!
The LD£1 is based around ‘Fun and Adventure’, featuring pioneering Victorian educator Charlotte Mason. Charlotte Mason established her House of Education in Ambleside in 1892 and it is still part of the University of Cumbria campus on site. The LD£1 also features a view across the Fairfield Horseshoe near Ambleside.
The LD£5 celebrates ‘Creativity and Freedom’, featuring Rebecca Gill’s artistic portrait of children’s author Beatrix Potter and a view across Buttermere in the Western Lake District.
The LD£10 celebrates ‘Resilience and Determination’, embodied in portrait by mountaineer Sir Chris Bonington and featuring the view across Ullswater to Helvellyn, one of the highest mountains in England.
The LD£20 represents ‘Love for the Landscape’ and features Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley, who lived in the Lake District and was one of the founders of the National Trust as well as a key pioneer in conservation. It also features a view across Coniston Water to the famous Old Man of Coniston.
