7. Explore Milford Haven’s heritage

There are three unique Heritage Walking Trails which celebrate Milford Haven’s stories which have been created for everyone to enjoy.

Through a National Lottery Heritage Fund project, coordinated by Milford Youth Matters which was launched in 2021, pupils from Milford Haven School were asked to research stories about our town’s Historic Haven, Energy Kingdom and Water Ways, the key themes that make Milford Haven’s ‘Sense of Place’ so unique.

To take part in the trails, keep an eye out for the signs attached to lamp posts dotted around the marina which give a brief summary, with QR codes taking you to the Milford Waterfront website for you to read the full story.
