The first brick was laid in 2012 and it has become an increasingly popular way for people to make their mark both here at the Cathedral and in the city.
The Cathedral's intention is that The People’s Path stretches out from various points in the surrounding grounds, including outside the Lady Chapel, becoming a new point of interest and somewhere that people will visit to get a flavour of the vibrancy and community of Liverpool.
Canon Myles Davies, Acting Dean in 2012 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.”
