The Cob - Porthmadog

The Cob at Porthmadog was built by William Maddocks and finished in 1811.  It stopped the tide from flooding the land in as far as Aberglaslyn.  The land that was reclaimed became productive farmland and the road and railway across The Cob brought prosperity to Porthmadog.  Take a walk along The Cob (footpath away from the traffic on the opposite side to the railway or walk carefully alongside the railway line to see the seaward side and see the amazing variety of wildlife.
