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 .

Well Meadow To Dukinfield Road And Beyond



Dave took these picture of the tunnel under the railway leading from Flowery Field to Dukinfield Road after we did another posting from the area. It seems this as been a right of way for many years, well before the railway and the Throstle Bank mill was built as can be seen on the 1841 map.
