Commemorating and celebrating the vibrancy of the city's people and beyond, you can mark an important date, person or people by having your message engraved on a brick in the People’s Path.

Since the first brick was  laid in 2012, the  People's Path has become a popular way for people to leave a lasting memory  the grounds surrounding the  Cathedral.

The People’s Path stretches out from various points around the Cathedral, including outside the Lady Chapel. It has become a point of interest - somewhere visitors can view the people who make the city was it was, and what it is today.

When the Path began In 2012, Canon Myles Davies said:

“We hope that The People’s Path will become a rich tapestry, detailing life in, and connected to, Liverpool, and featuring people from all walks of life, from all over the world and all with their own connection to the Cathedral and the city."

“It is not just about memorial, although that is a big part – the Cathedral and Liverpool are both living, breathing and growing communities, and we invite people to mark perhaps a key date or event in their life, such as a graduation or memorable visit, or simply say ‘I am here’. For many the Cathedral is their symbol of Liverpool, and now they can literally be a part of it.”

Erin Lillie Thompson’s grandmother Rita Delves bought a brick to mark her granddaughter’s christening at the Cathedral and will give it to her for Christmas. Rita said,

“I wanted to mark Erin’s Christening in an unusual way, and as she gets older, she will be able to visit and see her name on show at the Cathedral. If she ever moves away, I hope it will give her a feeling of grounding and belonging to the city of Liverpool. I hope it gives her a place where she can come to relax, to think and to enjoy.”

Proceeds from the People's Path will go to help keep the Cathedral free to visitors and supports the Cathedral’s development and work in the community.

Individuals or businesses can purchase a brick and sections will be released on a limited basis.


Everyone who buys a brick will receive a certificate of authenticity.
