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 .

Thanks go to Grant for these 3 pictures... The early 1990s does not seem that long ago but the area has changed since these were taken.

Interesting pics Tom - the bus station looks vast!

The Doctors Surgeries have changed also.

Am guessing these were taken on a Sunday...it all looks a bit quiet.

Hi Ian
It dose look big... as for all the changes it as gone through I think the one we have now is the best. The building is a great design, I have found it to be cleaner and certainly warmer. The seating is welcome and of course it is a safer place now.

The bus station itself may be better now, but I don't like walking across the roadway there. I really have to stop and think because the buses effectively go the 'wrong way' round the central waiting area.
