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 .

This building is a little gem and Nancy as been trying to save it for a while now, it would be such a shame if it was to bite the dust...
