Dockyard dating from 1800[edit]

There are a couple of errors in this article. Firstly, the town is usually called simply "Milford" ("Milford Haven" is the name of the estuary and harbour on which the town in located). Secondly, it is untrue that the dockyard was established by the Navy in 1797. The shipyard, already in existance for some years, was leased by the Navy Board in 1800 to complete warships building there after the shipbuilding firm of Jacobs & Son went bankrupt.

It might be called Milford by the locals but serious use is Milford Haven - else we need Haverfordwest at Haford. Agathoclea (talk) 20:03, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Toponymy[edit]

I'm not sure this section is correct. Milford Haven is referenced in Shakespeare's play Cymbeline (1611), which implies the name was in common use then, even in London. This is somewhat earlier than 1868. --Ef80 (talk) 19:51, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

GA check[edit]

I am working my way through the Good articles listed at Places; having a quick look to see if they still meet the Good article criteria. I have reached this article. After I've had a quick look, I'll leave a note here. In general, initially I look to see if there are obvious issues: maintenance tags, unsourced sections, excessive media, etc, and if so, if this can be resolved quickly by myself. If it looks like there may be significant and/or several minor issues, I'll open a GAR to see the extent of the problems. If it looks like there are sufficient concerns to put the GA listing in jeopardy, and that significant work is needed to resolve the concerns, I will notify the main contributors to the article, and put the GAR on hold.
