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..
If you have any pictures, stories, memories, or items from or about Hyde and you would like to share them here with other like minded Hydonians please get in touch with us. Either leave us a comment or even better email us:
Tom, Dave, Paul and I would like to say thank you to everyone for contributing to this blog in some small way - even if that means just reading it! It's been more of a success than we could ever have dreamt of and that's all down to you ! It was our intention to get Hyde "on the record" as it were and it seems to be heading in the right direction. We are very proud of Hyde and would like it's history to live on!
