Ringshall is a hamlet in the Chiltern Hills of England. Parts of it lie in the parishes of Edlesborough Northall and Dagnall and Ivinghoe in Buckinghamshire, but it is now mainly in the parish of Little Gaddesden(where to population was included) in Hertfordshire. The postal address is "Ringshall, BERKHAMSTED".

Ringshall is one of four place-names in the parish of Edlesborough Northall and Dagnall that have an origin with the suffix healh; the others being Dagnall, Hudnall and Northall.[1] Ringshall-Hall Farm is situated in the Edlesborough part, but the hamlet was always appendant to Ivinghoe.[2] The Ivinghoe part of the hamlet was transferred to Little Gaddesden in 1895,[3] but some houses have since been built along Beacon Road in the area that remained as part of Ivinghoe parish.
