Craster Harbour.

Craster is a small fishing harbour and a very popular tourist destination, due partly to it's proximity to Dunstanburgh Castle.

The village is known for the world famous Craster Kippers which are still smoked in the traditional manner by a local company.

There is evidence of a previous trade at Craster by the curious construction at the harbour entrance. This used to be a loading facility for stone quarried locally - ships would moor at the harbour entrance to be loaded.
