When whaling declined,
Milford Haven became a naval port, though nowadays another sort of oil - crude mineral
oil - provides its main income.
This history is well illustrated in the
excellent Maritime Museum which is situated in the harbour area (see link below for our report on this museum).
The river is a hive of activity - sailing craft, ferries to Ireland,
naval craft and tankers - and Milford is worth a visit just for that.
