Ringland is a rural village (population 217) in Norfolk, England, situated in the valley of the River Wensum, approximately 7 miles (11 km) northwest of Norwich. Parts of the Wensum valley within Ringland parish constitute a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
The parish church of St Peter's has a 13th-century tower and a 14th-15th century nave and chancel.
The village has extensive common land: a lower area on the river Wensum and an upper area with the remains of a Beaker pit in the direction of Weston Longville.
The river was originally crossed by a wooden footbridge (and a ford for horse-drawn traffic). This was replaced in the 1920s with a concrete structure which remains today. Rare concrete 'tank traps' from World War II still exist by the banks of the Wensum.
