Gorsgoch, Ceredigion

Gorsgoch is a small rural hamlet (place) near Lampeter in the county of Ceredigion, Wales. "Cors" (mutated to Gors) is Welsh for "marsh" or "bog", and "goch" is the mutated form of "coch" meaning "red": so the name literally translated means "Red Marsh". This marsh is located alongside the main road that leads through the village. The village is currently developing at a high rate. New houses are being constructed and there are planning applications for more. Gorsgoch has a pub, Cefn-Hafod.
