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 .

Update 25/09/11

Here's the same view Dave has taken today (25/09/11) and it's changed so little Dave made it into a black and white photo so we can see how similar it is.

Since the weather's been ok today for the first time since last Saturday, I've been up Joel Lane today to take a photo of this scene which I'll send to you. You'll see that it's hardly changed from the picture above. If you fancy having a stroll down Joel Lane, Tom, I'll gladly give you a lift to the top, but with the lack of pavements and the amount of traffic using it now, it's a pretty precarious walk.
