An early photo
This photograph of the front at Clevedon shows the beach as it used to be before the lake was built.
Then at the highest tides of the year rubbish that had floated into that corner of the beach stayed there until the next highest tide some 3 months later.
Gently and quietly disappointing its smells to all who ventured near.
A gentleman called Nutting purchased the Sal House and the bit of wood and presented the wood to the Clevedon Council putting the ball squarely in their court.
This put 'stinky corner' in the councils plot, and they had to fence it off by building the lake wall giving the town an excellent bathing place.
The house later became The Salthouse pub.
