Chalgrove is a village and civil parish in the South Oxfordshire District of Oxfordshire, England about 10 miles (16 km) southeast of Oxford. The parish includes the hamlet of Rofford and the former parish of Warpsgrove with which it merged in 1932. The 2011 UK census recorded the parish population as 2,830.
Chalgrove is the site of a small early Civil War battle, the Battle of Chalgrove Field (1643). The Parliamentarian John Hampden was wounded in the battle, as a result of which he died six days later.
