History of Powis Square
In the mid-19 century after the W11 area settled down to more conventional building, the planning was entrusted to Thomas Allom.
He leased the land to W.K. Jenkins, whose roots in the Welsh Marches are remembered in the name Powis Square. This was named after Powis Castle - a medieval military stronghold in Wales.
In the 1960’s there was a series of ‘break-ins’ and a march on the Town Hall by mothers and children. This lead Kensington and Chelsea to buy the square in 1968.
