Set up to envelop the outside of Liverpool Cathedral, the People’s Path tells the story of those who’ve helped maintain and support one of the city’s most iconic buildings and your brick will continue this tradition.

When you buy a personalised brick in the People’s Path you become part of the Cathedral’s fabric and history. Engraved in gold lettering, your personalised message inscribed on your brick can celebrate a special occasion or date – weddings, christenings, graduations, birthdays or remember a loved one. 

Your personalised message will be two lines and can be up to 16 characters long, and choose from two locations surrounding the outside of Liverpool Cathedral.*.

  • West Gate near Cathedral Main Entrance - £225
  • Sir Giles Gilbert Scott Suite - £175

Once you have submitted your order and payment, you'll get an inscription confirmation email from one of the Cathedral Team. When you get this email, you'll need to check your inscription is correct. You’ll have 14 days to get in touch with us if you need to make any changes.*

If your inscription is correct or you haven't contacted us, then two weeks later we will send your People's Path Certificate.

Money raised from the People's Path helps to keep the Cathedral free to visitors, supports the Cathedral’s development and work in the community.


Orders are taken year-round, and bricks will be laid three times a year, by the end of March, July and September. The deadline for last orders before each laying will be as follows: 

  • 1st February 
  • 1st June 
  • 1st August

In rare occasions, there may be times when we are unable to meet these deadlines due to bad weather, though all bricks will be on site. No layings occur over Winter as the cold at this time of year reduces the longevity of the bricks.


You will also be invited to two People’s Path Dedication Services every year. These will be on the second Sunday before Mothering Sunday and the fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost every year.

In 2024 our services will be: 10th March and 1st September. In 2025 our services will be: 16th March and 21st September.

Join us for an uplifting service to celebrate the story of those who’ve helped maintain and support one of the city’s most iconic buildings. Details can be found here.

Renewing your brick
