Old Warden Castle, also known as Quince Hill, is located in the village of Old Warden, in the county of Bedfordshire, England.

It is uncertain whether it is a motte castle or a ringwork.[1]

Roman and Celtic remains have also been located at the site.[2]

Today, only earthworks remain. These are known locally as Quints or Quince Hill. In 1995 the site was classified as a Scheduled Monument.[1]
