We are reliant on our supporters to help secure our survival. Your help will enable us to achieve our three interwoven aims, which are to educate people about early English women writers and their relevance today, to preserve Chawton House and grounds as part of our local and national heritage, and to manage an organic, working estate along eighteenth-century principles.
