The Bancroft estate has a number of other building apart from the Manor House. Perhaps you will claim a space like this and work from here.

I am offering inexpensive, long term residency and the opportunity to engage in an online Writing for Wellness course. Members like this participant may choose to take up residence in the Manor House or they may opt to restore one of the many cottages on the estate,

While participants are only asked to pay a one-off joining fee there is an expectation that they will actively support me as I establish Bancroft Manor and that they will help me extend my reach.

Depending on what you can afford, use Pay Pal to pay my agent, heatherblakey@fastmail.fm. You may choose to pay either $20 $35 or $40 in your local currency. This one-off payment will be used to help support the project.
