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 .

Stockport Road

Photobucket
Looking down Stockport Road

I've posted this because I like the interesting perspective. It looks more hilly than Normal. The Clarkes Arms is the white building in the middle of the picture. I also like the sunshine lighting up the distant buildings ,one of which I think is Oldhams Council Office block..

It looks very different.... you are right about the perspective I would not have recognised this at all Nancy. We should start a 'Different View' series.. or 'Guess the View' . ;o)

It's marvellous what you can do with a telephoto lens - I'll email you a few photos.
