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 .

NTA Printers

Here are a few aeriel shots of NTA Printers before it became Ricky Hattons Gym.
The Building was known as  Andrew House officially.

I always thought they had the coolest phone number in Hyde - 368 0000. I wonder if the gym took over this number?

I remember this site long before NTA Printers were there. 
I recall running the length of Queen Street , where my Nan lived, cutting across the spare ground that NTA was built on, behind the billboards and through the garages, to a grocers shop on Market Street called Wilds, to get a loaf of Champion bread and two bottles of sterilised milk and a treat if there was any change (there always was ) :)
Ahh .... happy days !!

The gym did keep the number in part, its 366 0000.
