Craster, on the Northumbrian coast, is a small fishing village famous for its smoked herrings or kippers, caught locally. There are the ruins of Dunstanburgh castle to explore just outside the village, and of course Craster, with its small harbour is set within the Northumberland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Craster family who own the Craster Tower, had the harbour built at the beginning of the 20th century to aid the transport of the whinstone they quarried, as well as for the local fishermen and to commemorate Captain John Crastor who was killed in the Tibet Campaign. The Craster family have lived in the area since the 11th century; however, the village takes its name from the ancient earthworks that lie above it: Crawcestre, which means ‘crow’s earthworks,’ the name of the village until somewhere around 1500.

Eating smoked foods – health problems
Smoked fish is much better for us that smoked meats, but there are some health problems associated with the smoking process. Carcinogens may be present in the environment of a smoking plant, and these, if inhaled over a prolonged period of time, could lead to cancer.
However, smoked fish is a relatively healthy option as it contains vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids, both of which are vital for our health.
If you should be on a low-sodium diet though, it would be wise not to eat smoked products as salt is used in the smoking and preserving process.
