The River Chalke is a small river within the English county of Wiltshire, the most significant tributary of the River Ebble.

The river rises at Mead End, Bowerchalke and flows 1.2 miles through the Chalke Valley to join the Ebble at Mount Sorrel in Broad Chalke. It provides a steady, year round flow of water, so that the winterbourne section of the Ebble is only from Alvediston to Knapp.

A typical chalk stream, the Chalke is noted for its brown trout and fish farms.
