The last time I saw a £50 note was in about 1997. I pay with cash a lot. I think it's fair to say they don't get used all that much.

Why would you receive a £50 paying in cash?

There’s larger note for which you could be receiving it as change.

If they pay for lots of things in cash, they must also receive lots of cash somehow. Otherwise they’ll be out of cash pretty quick!

Cash machines don’t often dispense 50s though, so unless they’re going into a branch they would never encounter one.

I know people who get out their cash for the month from a branch and do get 50s.

If I recall correctly it was when I was a bartender and someone paid using one.
