Milford Haven has an unusual history, the books claim that it is a "New Town" constructed to serve the docks after an Act of Parliament in 1790 but most of the suburbs predate this by hundreds of years, viking raids are recorded in the year 850 and key buildings (including the restored Thomas-a-Becket chapel) date back to 1170.
 
The town centre was constructed in the 1790's by American Quakers, it still features a US "grid" road layout. Many of these buildings are still standing, with a disctinctive "austere" appearance, in keeping with the Quaker tradition. The town thrived due to the Oil Industry - Whale oil was used to power Britain's street lights. The first oil age ended when gas lamps reduced the demand for oil.
 
The towns second oil age began when Esso built a refinery in 1960, a great boost to the towns prosperity. This time, Milford was ready for gas imports to take over. With the help of new gas Terminals in the nearby vilages of Waterston and South Hook, it is the third largest port in Britain and still growing!
