The Oxford and Milford Haven Road page 2


Pages: 1 <2>

The last miles into Milford take us by Merlin's Bridge through Johnston and Steynton. The town to which we now come is styled Old Milford. The age of it is by no means great, for it was founded in 1790 as a place to serve the Irish packet-line. When those packets were removed to Neyland, that village was styled "New Milford," but this has also, in turn, suffered neglect. The great sea-fiord of Milford Haven, in fact, although extensive enough and with deep water throughout, so that all the navies in the world could anchor in it, has never really come into its own, and is mostly a lone waste of water. Time and again it has been proposed to make due use of this wonderful natural harbour of Pembrokeshire, but its day has not yet dawned.
