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 .

St Stephens Church

With the recent sad news of the closure of St Stephens Church we received this photo of the Altar in the church.

"Here is a Picture of the Altar at St Stephens Church in Hyde
Loaned to me by my brother Jeff and his son Mathew. Thanks, David Stafford".

I really hope that this fine church survives demolition. It is a Grade II listed building so there is a glimmer of hope.

Thanks to David Stafford & Mike Berrell for the great photographs.
Much appreciated as always !
