The old Church and Pilgrim Shop is still functioning, while at the Miss Bansons in the High Street, as well as at the Shrine itself, publications and souvenirs and cards are always on sale. We trust competition will be a boon to business.
As all our readers know that the South-West chapel at the Shrine has been fitted up and enclosed with some beautiful iron gates, it is now proposed to treat the North-West chapel in a similar way, and to make it into the Chantry Chapel of King Edward I and all pilgrims and benefactors to the Shrine. The point in calling it the Chantry of Edward I is owing to the fact that the King had a very great devotion to OLW, and came here at least thirteen times on pilgrimage, and had a chantry chapel built in the old priory church where mass was said for his soul and that of his family and ancestors.
