The Cors Goch reserve is one of several
lowland fens on Anglesey and you can find it between the villages
of Pentraeth and Benllech. The reserve lies in the bed of an
ancient glacial lake. Over time, the lakes ancient hollow has
filled in with peat, as plant life thrived and died through the
past 10,000 years - leaving the fen we see today. Like the other
wetlands on Anglesey, Cors Goch is an outlying refuge for many
plants more often associated with the fens of East Anglia.
The main access point to the reserve lies at the northeast end
of the site. A path runs the length of Cors Goch for about
one-and-a-half kilometers and there is a boardwalk through the fen,
although this can be uneven when there’s a high water level.
There are no surfaced paths on the reserve and the terrain
varies from flat to quite steep.Some uneven short stretches are
unsuitable for wheelchairs or prams.
