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 .

Greenfield Street School Demolition
The following photographs and commentary were sent in by Steve:-
Here are some photos of Greenfield Street School when it was demolished - to make way for the new Asda store. (circa 2000)?
They actually let me go round the school and take these pictures as it was a bank holiday and there was only the security on
One is the date stone off the front of the school, one is the huge bell tower off the top of the school and one is the upstairs corridor looking from the hall to the secretarys room .

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!
