Descriptive Gazetteer Entry for MILFORD (NEW), or NEYLAND

MILFORD (NEW), or NEYLAND, a seaport-village in Llanstadwell parish, Pembrokeshire; on a creek of Milford Haven, at the terminus of the Neyland extension of the South Wales railway, opposite Paterchurch and Hobbs Point, 3¼ miles N W of Pembroke. It is mainly of recent growth; it took the name of New Milford, in lieu of the old name of Neyland, in rivalry of Milford, sitnated 4½ miles to the WN W; and it has a post office‡ of the name of Neyland, under Pembroke, a railway station with telegraph, of the name of New Milford, a railway pier, bringing down the railway to the water's edge, and a good hotel. The steamers to Waterford started formerly from Hobbs Point, and start now from New Milford railway pier. The appearance of the village is very fine.
