Ringwould is a village near Deal in Kent, England. The coastal confederation of Cinque Ports during its mediaeval period consisted of a confederation of 42 towns and villages in all. This included Ringwould, as a 'limb' of Dover.[2]

The village also has one Grade II listed building, in its district.[3] As well as the Grade I listed church of St Nicholas.[4]
