This orthorectified image shows the Milford Haven Waterway (Welsh: Aberdaugleddyf), lower left quadrant, a natural harbour in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. As one of the deepest natural harbours in the world, it is a busy shipping channel; some ships and docks can be observed inside it upon opening the full image.

The Haven is a ria or drowned valley flooded at the end of the last Ice Age. It is formed by the Pembroke River and the Daugleddau estuary, and winds west to the sea. The Daugleddau estuary is formed by the Eastern and Western Cleddau Rivers.
