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 .

An absolute gem of a photo. Love this shot.....makes me feel hydesick. Am stuck in the Australian desert a million miles from anywhere, no green grass, no rolling hills....just mile upon mile of red dirt. Brilliant photo Duncan.

I thought I'd already commented on this.... everyone is right about this shot.. I'd be pleased to put my name to this.. ha! well done Dunc.. I recall meeting you very early one spring morning on Hobson Moor Road... the sky looked as if it was on fire, and the hills were covered in snow. I do miss my early morning jaunts in the land rover.
