They're buying unrestricted exclusive (except for one website/issue) use of the photographs off you for a pound. You get "credit", but no further payment. Looks enforceable if you sign it and they give you the nugget. Is that unusual?

It's a particularly restrictive one. I wonder what would happen if they don't give the £1. Can they at a future date if they decide they want to keep to the contract?

"...the payment by us to you of the sum of £1 (one pound) (the receipt ...of which you hereby acknowledge..."

Make sure they do give you the pound before you sign... :-) I think you're right to tell them to stuff it, or at least require that they cover your material costs in providing the photos.

'Notwithstanding the foregoing we hereby

failure to do so shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement.'

i like the way they can simply not bother crediting you and it doesn't really matter.
