This chapel was built in 1859 to serve a detached tithing of Manningford Bohune, and this cost £1,600. This was formally designated the vicarage of Wilsford with Manningford Bohune. The chapel was to be known as All Saints. The petition for the consecration of the property was sent to William Kerr, who was then Bishop of Sarum.

In 1864, there were 70 attendees meeting every Sunday afternoon, but only 14 are recorded to have received the sacrament in 1863. Services were also held on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and Christmas Day.

It was built in the style of the 13th century and is faced in stone which is arranged in a crazy-paved fashion. The plate of the church contains a chalice, flagon and a paten, which are all hallmarked 1858.

The chapel was declared redundant in 1973.

The church registers are preserved today and are held in the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre in Chippenham. Baptisms/are recorded from 1859 to 1973, marriages from 1876 to 1937, and burials from 1859 to 1978. For earlier entries, see Wilsford near Pewsey. Also the consecration order is held there.
