Summary Description

Milford Haven grew as a planned town founded in 1790 when an Act of Parliament authorised Sir William Hamilton to build ‘Quays, Docks and other erections.’ The plan was overseen by Hamilton’s nephew Charles Granville, the aim was to develop a major whaling port manned by Quaker Whalers from Nantucket, Massachusetts. The plan of the town was a grid of parallel streets but the ambitious plans for the port never materialised. The town developed as a major fishing port and then as the centre of a large number of oil refineries grouped round the Milford Haven Waterway.
