Bowerchalke is a small village 9 miles SW of Salisbury. The church dates from the 13thc to 15thc. The only Romanesque survival is the bowl of the font.


In 955 King Edwy granted Bowerchalke, which pertained to the manor of Chalke, to the nuns of Wilton abbey; still in 1066 and 1086 the Domesday Book records that grant. In 1066 Aeleva of Knoyle held the manor. In 1086 the lordship passed to Gerard and Richard Poynant; it had a value of £77. The village was part of the parish of Broad Chalke until the early 14thc, when became a separate parish and the church was built.






The church was restored in 1886 by Thomas Henry Wyatt.
