A new contract has confirmed sterling banknotes will carry on being printed
in Epping Forest for the next 10 years.

De La Rue, the world’s largest commercial banknote printer, today announced
that the contract will see the notes printed at the Bank of England
facility in Langston Road, Debden, until 2025.

On September 8, the Bank announced that De La Rue, who have printed the
banknotes in Debden since 2003, had been identified as the ‘preferred
bidder’ for the banknote printing contract, which was finalised today.

Very interesting. Does De La Rue have a section open to the public?

What else are they printing, by the way?

No! It's at the end of Langston Road and it looks like a
concentration camp, with barbed wire all round.

Strictly speaking, Langston Road is in Debden, not Loughton
although Debden is within the larger Loughton area. The other
end of Langston Road is close to Debden Station.

Banknotes for other countries.

For example?

Do they also print Manx notes? I hear that Pobjoy recently lost the
contract to cut Manx coins, BTW.

The Debden site is owned by the BoE, so it probably only makes BoE notes.
De La Rue has other banknote printing factories for other countries' notes.


The Debden site is owned by the Bank of England, but operated for them
by De La Rue. De La Rue also prints notes for many foreign countries,
but it's not clear whether of their three sites the one at Debden is
exclusively printing UK ones.

They used to produce a card game based on the London Underground.
