Chalkers Corner is where the A316 Great Chertsey Road crosses the A205 South Circular Road.

It is named after an undertakers firm (Chalker and Gamble) who were based at the junction. The undertaker has since closed and the building has become a vet.

Originally a crossroads between the B355 east and west, B356 to the north and an unclassified road to the south. It quickly became important, as by the late 20s the A316 being built to create a fifth arm (and taking over the B355 to the west), causing the rerouting of the A3003 via the junction's east and south arms. The A205 renumbering in the mid-50s renumbered the north-south route as the A205.
