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 .

Old Road - Bennet Street and Field Street.

Out and About With Dave and his Camera

We recently did a post about a family called Rowbottom - Rowbotham who lived in this area which can be viewed here: Rowbottom/Rowbotham   Dave saw the post and went out for us and took this great set of  pictures of how the area looks now.
