Photographer's Note

There are no roads to Dunstanburgh Castle; it is reached by foot along a 1 mile path from the village of Craster. I overheard a visitor asking the man on the desk how he got to work. I dont know what she expected the answer to be, but he walks both ways every day, so a good way to keep fit. As you can see the castle stands right on the coast. In my next post from here I will tell you a bit about the castle, but first Craster, which is important in its own right.

If you look here you can see the village of Craster with the castle in the distance.

Craster is famous for its oak-smoked kippers. They are supposed to be the best in the UK. L Robson & Son have been smoking and selling kippers for 140 years. Herrings are locally caught, prepared and hung over fires burning whitewood shavings and oak sawdust, for at least 16 hours. When the smoking is finished, the herrings have become kippers. The original smokehouse, built in 1865, is still being used, as you can see here.
