Situated between Spital and Bromborough, the valley woodland is one of the finest examples of ancient woodland on Merseyside. It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Local Nature Reserve.
Dibbinsdale is thought to have formed part of the boundary in the 10th and 11th centuries between the Norse colony in Wirral, to the north and west, and Anglo-Saxon Mercia to the east and south. After the Norman Conquest, the whole area became part of the Hundred of Wirral.
