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 .

Snowy Stockport Road

To the right is Coco's hairdressers and what used to be Hursts Newsagents and to the left, just after the white van, is Silver Hill House. This used to be a Childrens day nursery and is now a house.

This was taken on January 5th 2010 and I remember the roads were near impassable.

Hursts News Agents took me back a bit... I used to go out with there daughter, can't recall her name now.... Looking at these shots Nancy I'm not surprised at how bad the driving was... I never used to take much notice in the old land rover... it just seemed to keep going...slow but surly. I give it to my oldest son this year, and he loved the snow... he's been pulling his neighbours cars out for them.. ha! not bad for a 42 year old vehicle.

The mention of Hurst Newsagents has link with the post about Gee Cross Post Office , in particular the Newsagents next door. That shop was run, after Jack Wright, by Jack Hurst the brother of the one that ran the shop in this post.
