The two mile long narrow gauge Chalke Valley Railway was built to provide transport for a mine at Mead End. The railway follows a southern tributary of the Ebble from a junction with the Ebble Valley Railway at Broad Chalke to Bowerchalke. The mine works a stratum of hard chalk marketed as marble and suitable for carving with aggregate as a by-product. A few years after opening to the mine the Chalke Valley Railway was extended from Mead End to Bowerchalke and passengers, parcels, and general goods traffic services commenced
