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 .

Views Around Hyde (7)

After reading Ex-Hydonian's comment on Dunc's great picture.... see below.

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 treat him to another great shot..... this one has been sent in by JohnT and he says:

Following the post today showing the photograph from Werneth Low taken early morning I attach a photograph I took from Werneth Low looking over Manchester. It makes you appreciate how lucky we are being so close to beautiful countryside with such fantastic views.
Thank you John... great view and I'm sure Hydonians across the globe will look at this view and yesterdays while feeling a little bit homesick..
