In 1849 Captain J.N. Gladstone, elder brother of the Liberal Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone, bought Bowden Park. He built this church in 1856-7 to celebrate the birth of a son in the Gladstone family. The architect was S.B. Gabriel of Bristol who designed it in the Early English style with a Romanesque north east tower. Bowden Hill parish was cut out of the existing Lacock parish to serve between 300 and 400 people in the scattered community on, and around, Bowden Hill. The two parishes were reunited in 1958.
