Murdishaw Wood is a varied woodland site on the outskirts of Runcorn and contains semi-natural ancient woodland, open grassy areas and small streams. It is connected to the east with Murdishaw Valley and together these sites are designated a Local Nature Reserve and Local Wildlife Site. They are important refuges for wildlife including foxes, badgers, squirrels and bats, as well as many bird species. There is a network of surfaced footpaths in the wood and valley allowing visitors to enjoy walks through a range of habitats and in spring and summer the woods and meadows have colourful displays of wildflowers.
