Hyde Name Origins.

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 .

Werneth Low

This was the view from atop of the quarry on Harrop Edge, Higher Matley in 2008... Hyde and the other surrounding towns were covered in thick fog. Werneth Low looked like an island poking up out of the sea.

Beautiful photograph of a gorgeous place.... At Christmas, my Grandfather used to insist that us kids would be dropped off at the top of Joel Lane and then he would drive off and we would walk across the Low. It was always bloody freezing in December and we were dragged from the warm fire to do this journey. Every year without fail. Thanks Grandad!
