Gilbert Blount (1819–1876) was an English architect working mostly for Catholic Churches. He started his career as a civil engineer under Brunel and became superintendent of the Thames Tunnel works. He then worked for Sydney Smirke, and then was appointed as architect to Cardinal Wiseman, the Catholic Archbishop of Westminster.

With a resurgence of Catholic church building in England, he worked on new churches throughout England and was thought to be of the school of Pugin.
