The name "HYDE" is derived from the hide, a measure of land for taxation purposes, taken to be that area of land necessary to support a peasant family. In later times it was taken to be equivalent to 120 acres .

Last Orders At The Bar Please....
GOING GOING GONE
Thanks goes to Viki Davis for thESE picture which shows the demolition of another Hyde pub.
The original pub
The pub is due to be pulled done soon, it as had a large number of landlords in the 25+ years I have lived in Newton. Here is a pub surrounded by housing but cannot make the money needed to make the venture worth while.... if pubs like this go then there really is a problem for many others.
If you have any pictures, stories, memories, or items from or about Hyde and you would like to share them here with other like minded Hydonians please get in touch with us. Either leave us a comment or even better email us:
Tom, Dave, Paul and I would like to say thank you to everyone for contributing to this blog in some small way - even if that means just reading it! It's been more of a success than we could ever have dreamt of and that's all down to you ! It was our intention to get Hyde "on the record" as it were and it seems to be heading in the right direction. We are very proud of Hyde and would like it's history to live on!
