Local History Walk

The intention here is to give an insight into the history of the village through its buildings, past and present. This project will be published here as progress is made. By doing so we hope to enable any one who is interested, to contribute.

The following map shows the locations of places of interest on a Craster History Walk.

The map is organised so that the locations can be visited in numerical order.
Locations 1 to 3 (and 29) can be seen on the way into the village.
The walk in the village begins in the public car park (no. 4) and reaches up to No. 28.
The final numbers, coloured black are included to draw attention to locations of interest in the area that are accessible from the village on foot.

It is planned that each entry will contain an image and a short piece of text. To find out more about a place of interest, return to this page and follow the link in the side menu.

The oral history project undertaken by the Craster Community Development Trust, culminating in the publishing of its research in 'We Can Mind the Time' in 2005 is an excellent source of information about Craster's past. This work has been used to inform the text on this site.
