The village of Craster owes its name to the Craster family.
The first mention of the family is reference to William de Craucetr holding the estate in 1272.
Craster Tower, listed in a survey of forts carried out in 1415, is a strong rectangular stone 15th century tower, of two storeys with a vaulted basement.
The present building has been little changed since that date.
It was the Craster family who built the present harbour in 1906 in memory of Captain John Craster who was killed during active service in India, in 1904.

An interesting note and an excellent photograph.
The colours here are just superb - the lighting has added to their vibrancy and also to their lovely reflection in the low water. Perfect exposure and exquisite detail and sharpness.

I like the melancholic mood of this image a lot, and the photographer’s perspective is excellent. But most of all I like the reflections and the harmonious colors. My compliments!
