Found out this week that the photograph of The Arches, that I had thought was taken perhaps by Godwin was in fact done by Henry Goodfellowe.
He was Clevedon's first resident professional photographer. His studio was at Number 1 Hill Road built in the garden. Later he had the wooden studio built in Linden Road, later it was Edwin Hazell there. 
Found out because there was a carte de visite for sale on Ebay that was an identical picture to the one I bought on Ebay some years back. Mine though, was a large print, also included a pic of the Arches stables, Walton Road and one of the beach in 1869 with pier bits showing on the pebbles.
