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 .

Views around the 'Gib'

We have Nick Folwell to thank for these pictures... he was inspired to send them in after seeing some of the pictures Dave as shown on Gibraltar.

Great picture Nick... all of which bought happy memories from my childhood flooding back... keep your picture coming in everybody, it's always a pleasure showing them here.

I've been trying to think of how many air raid shelters were down there... I can think of 3... but I'm almost sure there was four... would be interested to know if there was more.

Thanks for these photos. Hard to believe but I've never been down there beyond the old railway line. It looks very interesting and tomorrow I'm visiting Haughton Green so I plan to explore the Gib at the same time.
