Chevet is a civil parish in the City of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England. It has a population of 66.

Chevet Hall was a country house which stood in an estate, part of which is now Newmillerdam Country Park. The house was built in 1529 by the Nevile family and was bought in 1765 by Sir Lionel Pilkington, 5th Baronet and passed down through the Pilkington family. In 1954 the estate was acquired as a country park by Wakefield Council, who demolished the hall in the 1960s.

Until 1974 Chevet was in Wakefield Rural District
