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 .

The Navigation /Cheshire Ring.

Pubs

The Navigation on Manchester Road.

Pubs

The Cheshire Ring Formerly known as the Navigation.
A good pub for live music.


The Verge: This is a really small venue, with seating for around 50 and standing room for a few more, or the possibility of quite a few more if standing only. It has a unique stage, full PA system and lighting. It is a real ale pub, with a bar in the separate venue room. The Verge

This is where the local Laurel & Hardy Society folk meet.

I had forgot about them, there must be a lot of history tied up in this building... I think the inquest into the Hyde Lane Pit Disaster was held here. As Hyde wharf is at the side of here it must had good trade from the canal and pit workers. In recent times it was very much the place to drink 'Real Ale' and now the music scene is doing very well.
