Village

Details

Dale is a water sports Mecca as it occupies a mile wide sheltered bay on the Milford Haven waterway. The waters in the bay are clean and gently shelving, perfect for sailing and kayaking; tuition and rentals are available in the village.

Dale’s prominent location on the mouth of Milford Haven meant that it had a defensive role for many centuries. On 7 August 1485, Henry Tudor and troops landed at Mill Bay and marched unopposed to Leicestershire where, at Bosworth Field, Henry successfully defeated Richard III and claimed the throne.

Dale in the C18th century was an ale producing centre and exported beer to Liverpool and general cargoes were also carried as part of the coastal trade.
