Neyland has wide views over the river and a long history as a sea port. Neyland marina is located just beneath the imposing road bridge which brings the main A477 away from the Cleddau toll Bridge. Westfield Pill at the top of the marina has two fish passes which enable migratory fish to travel up the Rosemarket stream. Neyland town itself is full of history, with interpretation panels at the water’s edge telling the history of the coming of the Brunel railway and the old ferry which used to cross the river to Hobbs Point on the opposite bank. The Cleddau bridge itself is an impressive gateway for the Milford Haven estuary. Once described by Admiral Nelson as the greatest natural harbour in the UK, the Milford Haven waterway has seen whaling, fishing and naval activities come and go over the last few centuries.
