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 .

Dave's Picture

This picture is taken from the far end of the field facing Broomstair Nurseries - you can see the nursery in the foreground, and the row of trees (poplars?) behind it are at the side of the river at the back of the sewage farm off Mill Lane.
