Papal Monument, Heaton Park, Manchester
Papal Monument, Heaton Park, Manchester
On the 31st May 1982 Pope John Paul the Second celebrated Mass here. This stone commemorates the event. Over 200,000 people were present around this spot on that day. His Holiness also planted a tree near this spot. It has come to light, however, that at some time between that day and the death of the Pope in April 2005 this tree has been stolen and its whereabouts are unknown! Picture taken from SD 827 036
