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 .

Spotted In Hyde

Well done Dave

Photobucket

This was in the Daily Mail one day last week....  . It's the window of the Coversure Insurance office on the corner of Market Street and Chapel Street - Our very own Dave noticed the list on the window of the cover they offered, he says it took him a while to twig that the 'Arctic' they listed was their version of 'Artic', for 'Articulated lorry', which is what made him think of the polar bears. Well spotted Dave.. and well done for making the 'Nationals'
