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 .

Sad decline of The Theatre Royal.

There has been a lot of speculation in recent years on the Theatre Royal Cinemas on what was going to happen with them. I am glad that there is an active group that are trying hard to renovate and re-open the cinemas - It's such a shame that the building is in private hands though. Hyde could do with these re-opening as cinemas as you have to travel to Ashton to watch a film now.

It will be such a shame if this building is allowed to deteriorate to such a state that it has to be demolished.
