Ringstead is a small village and civil parish in Northamptonshire, England approximately 15 miles north-east of Northampton. At the time of the 2001 census, the parish's population was 1,428 people.

The River Nene runs directly past the village in a series of locks. During the 1980s, major sand and gravel excavations took place all around Ringstead leaving many man-made lakes and islands. There is a local primary school situated next to St Mary's church, which is host to the famous Ringstead flower festival. Ringstead was the birthplace of Alfred Roberts, the father of Margaret Thatcher.
