Its factory is located beside the River Neb and originally took herring from harbour boats and processed the fish as fast as possible to preserve them. At one time over 150 people worked in the factory, producing tons of kippers a day. The fish are cut then soaked in salt and placed on racks before being hung in large chimneys to be smoked.
Moore's is a family business and a working factory and shop. As the last of these traditional curing yards it is now a living museum and you are invited to experience a working display of this almost lost culinary art. The tours are excellent and take visitors through the entire kipper making process.
