MILFORD HAVEN, A COMMERCIAL PORT ON A GREAT NATURAL WATERWAY

MILFORD HAVEN, A COMMERCIAL PORT ON A GREAT NATURAL WATERWAY

The road comes at last to Milford Haven, six miles from the mouth of one of the finest natural harbours of the kingdom. The Irish Mail station was here before it was transferred to Holyhead, and the Royal Dockyard at Pembroke was successor to one established at "Old Milford" in 1790. It was from Milford that, in 1172, the fleet of Henry II set sail, intending to conquer Ireland. During the Great War the town gave its name to the marquesate bestowed upon the late Prince Louis Mountbatten.
