Living in Kingsland, Herefordshire: The Local Area Guide

Kingsland is a small village in the West Midlands County of Herefordshire. The village was a Royal Manor of Edward I and was so favoured by Merowald, the King of Mercia, that it was excluded from paying annual charges. The village church, which still stands today, was initially constructed in 1290. The area is also home to the Kingsland Castle, a landmark so rich in history and significance it is protected as a scheduled ancient monument. There is a monument at the end of North Road commemorating the massive loss of life in the Battle of Mortimer’s Cross between the Yorkists and the Royalists.

There was once a railway that travelled from Kingsland to Leominster but the last train ran in September 1964. This is indicative of the wider change that has affected Kingsland over the years. Historically, agriculture has been of great importance to the area but along with milling, shoe making, and glove making, old trades have disappeared from Kingsland and been replaced by more contemporary businesses and services.
