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 part of the Murdishaw Valley Local Nature Reserve with wildlife including foxes, badgers, squirrels, bats and woodland bird species including woodpeckers. 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.
