The village of Kinsham lies on the river Lugg just over three miles from Presteigne and is right on the Welsh border.
It is split into two settlements, Upper and Lower Kinsham, the name being roughly translated as “border meadow belonging to the King”.

- Kinsham Court History
This lovely manor house was once part of the Harley Estate and was used as a hunting lodge; It is also believed to have been lived in by the family of Florence Nightingale, and also Lord Byron who it was believed locally worked on “Childe Harold” here, although to date I can find no concrete proof of this and indeed a lady from “Byronmania” has contacted me saying that it is almost impossible for this to be true. Lord Byron wrote the piece before he leased Kinsham Court. She did concede that he could have written other poetry whilst at Kinsham.
