Martinscroft is a part of the civil parish of Woolston in Warrington, Cheshire, England.

Martinscroft Green is the village green and is also a popular place for recreational activities. It recently has been enlarged by new housing estates and the building of a hotel, although it has a few old cottages still along the village green.
