Given how few houses sit nestled against the sea in the Northumberland village of Craster, it’s surprising to discover old footage of the settlement and its activities. But then, it’s a place that has beauty, history and tradition for the visitor to admire.
Craster Kippers 1982
It’s just a quick thirsty second segment, but this footage takes us to the famous Craster Kippers production back in 1982.
A long standing Robson family business, the herrings are prepared using no chemicals or artificial colouring. Then they are smoked for around 14 hours.
