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 .

Apple Street view

Here is a lovely shot of Apple Street /Cock Brow.

I'm always rather tired by the time I get to the top - the views are stunning once you make it though
Apparently, Apple Street is the longest Street in Hyde - not sure how true this is as I've never measured it personally ! I haven't got a tape measure long enough :)

Another great photo by Stephen Burton - Many Thanks !

They used to say that George Street was the longest in Hyde but now it's buried deep beneath the M67, Apple Street probably has that honour, although some would probably say its a country lane rather than a street.

It looks like a lovely place to walk! I am always amazed by the stone walls in your area!
