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 .

"Support Theatre Royal Onward" Anthology

I bought this book in Hyde today. It's being sold in aid of the " Save Theatre Royal Onward" charity which is doing sterling work in trying to save the old Theatre Royal from being demolished and turned into yet more faceless houses or retail premises.
Hyde needs old buildings like this to be saved as too many have been pulled down over the past 30 years. We need to save our heritage.
Buy this book and contribute to a very worthy cause.
