Milford Haven
Milford Haven is an early example of a purpose built "New Town." Founded in 1790, it was designed and developed by American Quakers. They had departed Britain for America because they wanted a fresh start and freedom to practice their faith. On arrival, they had to found new colonies and learnt the specialist skills required to build the new town.
 
  • Milford Haven is the largest port in Wales and the third largest port in the UK.
  • It developed as a fishing port, expanded into Oil Refining during the 1960s and now hosts two major LNG (gas) terminals.
  • Our front street (Hamilton Terrace) may appear Austere to some visitors because the founders did not believe in flaunting wealth and we want to preserve our old buildings.
  • The modern town includes a large marina complex and a purpose built retail park. (Both areas have free car parks.)
 
Pembrokeshire
Pembrokeshire is a spectacular county with locations and scenery to rival anywhare else. Here is a sample of what makes this County special.
  • Milford Haven estuary and Cleddau Rivers. A natural splendour with 22 miles of largely unspoilt navigational waterway.
  • Tenby. This world famous beach resort has four separate sandy beaches and scenic beauty typical of South pembrokeshire.
  • Pembrokeshire locations have been used by at least 20 films including Harry Potter and DragonWorld
  • Over 500 Km2 (14% of the county) is designated as national park. Whilst best known for the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park also encompasses a quiet inland moorland on the Preseli Hills.
  • The county also contians ... more than 70 Sites of Special Scientific Interest, over 20 Conservation Areas and about 11 Blue Flag beaches.
The Cleddau Bridge tolls were finally abolished in 2019, motorists can now travel freely between the north and south of the county.
