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 Iron Bridge.

The Iron Bridge stood over the railway lines at the end of Walker Fold and led to Bears Woods. I used to love running on to the bridge when a train was coming and stand over the passing train...The bridge was removed when the railway tracks were decommisioned and turned into part of the Pennine Trail.

I've got vague memories of that bridge when I was about 4 yrs old when we lived on St Giles drive for a while, and remember the trains plodding past our back garden as well.
