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 .

The George Pub - "Now and Then".

 Todays post shows how the George Pub looks now and a comparison shot of how it used to look.

George Hotel

I used to love this pub.
It was a nice friendly place to meet friends, did great food and had some really excellent live music acts on.
Such a shame it was one that disappeared.

I always thought this was a safe pub... it seemed to have a great crowd of customers, the music nights did well as did the food... It was also a placed well used for funeral wakes. I lost count at how many I'd been to that were held there. I think it became a victim of how the area around it changed. Such a shame Nancy... I wonder how many more are going to end up going this way.

The people in the black and white photo of the George Hotel are my grandma and her brother. My Great Grandad (James Pennington)owned this pub in the 1930s. It was nice to see the photo again. Sad in a way to see what it looks like now
