Note
Due to the large number of interest points on this trail, it has been split into 6 sections. Print every section to complete the route.
Milford Haven Town Trail - Section 3
Point 17 Point 17 - Cleddau Community Church
As we clear the road entrance to the docks, we notice the distinctive Cleddau Community Church on our right, a modern church built into the original dock building. There is a side entrance from the main road for worshippers who have difficulty climbing the steps.
We will continue on the main road for a few metres before encountering a centre for night-life.
Point 18 Point 18 - The Basement
As we start up the hill, we notice a black building called The Basement. This is the town’s night club. It is busiest on Friday nights, Saturday Nights and Bank Holiday weekends.
Staying on the main road, we will cross over when safe. The pavement on the seaward side will offer better views of the Haven Waterway. Continue along the main road, with the water on your right until you reach the next junction.
Point 19 Point 19 - Dartmouth Street
The road climbing up to our left is called Dartmouth Street. Milford Haven is built on the side of a bank using the American style grid-layout. (The town developers were American Quakers.) Dartmouth Strete provides access to the traditional town centre in Charles Street. The white building is on the junction.
We will continue on the main road until we are opposite the building featured in the next photo.
Point 20 Point 20 - The Lord Nelson Hotel
This hotel was built in 1800, within 10 years of the founding of our town. Originally, it was called “The New Inn.” In 1802, Lord Nelson stayed at the New Inn and it was subsequently renamed “The Lord Nelson Hotel.” At this point, the main road is called “Hamilton Terrace,” (renamed to commemorate Lady Hamilton.) Many of the buildings on Hamilton Terrace have unusual “tunnel style” basements which continue under the main road. For many years, the Lord Nelson Hotel basements were used as a night club and called Emmas. Today, it provides a bar, hotel, event and wedding facilities.
Continue along the road with the sea on your right.
Point 21 Point 21 - MegaPrinter Building
This distinctive early building, sandwiched between two banks, is now a media centre. It is home to Core-FM an online radio station and the local newspaper called The Pembrokeshire Herald which is published every Friday. It has an interesting history including use as the Evolution-Experience nightclub.
Continue along Hamilton Terrace, we look out for the cream building in the next photo.
Point 22 Point 22 - Quaker Architecture
A classic case of looks can be deceiving. At first glance, this could be mistaken for a rather bland piece of modern architecture. It is one of the oldest buildings in Milford Haven and part of the Quaker founders original town plan. This was Newings Hardware Shop until very recently. The “austere” appearance of these buildings would have been very appropriate to the beliefs of our Quaker founders.
Continue along Hamilton Terrace until you reach the start of the grass lawns and look out for a bronzed plaque on a brick plinth.
Point 23 Point 23 - Wellington Bomber Plaque
This tribute overlooks the site where a Wellington Bomber aircraft crashed in 1942. The plaque lists members of the crew who were all killed. It was installed in 1988.
Stay on Hamilton Terrace, with the sea to your right. Look out for the Hotel in the next photo. It will be in the line of buildings on the left side of the road.
Point 24 Point 24 - Barallier House B&B
The central building is Barallier House, constructed in 1797 and conforming to Quaker styling. It currently offers B&B accommodation. The house next door has an iron balcony. This was the home of the Quaker Whaler - Benjamin Rotch. The house was transformed into the town’s first bank after he moved to the outskirts of Milford Haven.
Continue along the seaward side of Hamilton Terrace. Our next stop is the War Memorial, located on the next set of lawns.
