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 .

Gardeners Arms

You may remember that we reported a couple of months ago that the Gardeners Arms on Lumn Road had closed down. Well, two weeks ago it re-opened it's doors under new management. Lets hope a few more of our lost pubs return in the not so distant future.

They are having groups playing every friday night so here's a bit of shameless advertising for my friends band who will be playing there on the 13th August .
Good Luck Neil and "Timeless"! :)

Good luck to the new pub people at the Gardeners, and hope that 'Timeless' pack the place out. Such a shame that pubs are going out of business at such a rate. With regard to the Bankfield Tom, when I was a kid, around 1964 - 1965, my dad was a painter and decorator and he painted the outside of the Bankfield. I distinctly remember him up a ladder at the front. Having said that, I shouldn't have been in the pub at that age.....way too young!
