The [[International Hydrographic Organisation]] now defines the western limit of the Bristol Channel as "a line joining [[Hartland Point]] in [[Devon]] ({{coord|51|01|N|4|32|W|display=inline}}) to [[St. Govan's Head]] in [[Pembrokeshire]] ({{coord|51|36|N|4|55|W|display=inline}})". The IHO previously put the western limit at a line from [[Trevose Head]] in [[Cornwall]] to [[Skomer Island]] in Pembrokeshire, in an area now considered part of the [[Celtic Sea]].<ref>{{cite web|url=|title=Limits of Oceans and Seas, 3rd edition + corrections|year=1971|publisher=International Hydrographic Organization|accessdate=6 February 2010|page=42 [corrections to page 13]}}</ref>
