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 From Around Lord Derby Road, Gee Cross

Another set of great pictures from our roving photographer Dave Williams... he tells me these are all from around the Lord Derby road area... and the little track off it.

Photobucket

I'm glad to see this view as it clearly shows along the centre of the shot the new school building at Flowery Field which is to left of St Georges Church Tower and the Town Hall, and right of Flowery Field church. St Stephens which is now shut looks well behind the new school building.

Holy Trinity is just poking up over the roof tops, and to the right is Hobson Moor which is another fine vantage point to take in the fresh air and views.

Middle of the shot and to the left is Bowlacre old folks home. Above that the rooftops of Haughton Green and Denton... then the water park at Debdale.. incredible to think that an Osprey as been sighted there.

Looking over towards the top end of Newton, just above the lamp post centre shot can be seen a row of trees... these are Poplars and are behind the houses at the top of Talbot Road, in fact to the right slightly lower is the roof top of The Bay Horse. Above the trees is the hill at the top of Yew Tree Lane, Dukinfield.. I stood there many a time taking picture looking back towards Gee Cross.

Thanks Dave for these amazing shots. Where were you standing to get Jodrell? I've tried for years to locate it but never managed it!

I think the best way of showing you the viewpoint for the shots of Jodrell Bank is to tell you to look on Google Earth at that part of the path leading from the end of Lord Derby Road just before it meets Hillside Road at the far end. You will see that there is a cluster of buildings to the South-East of the path and there is a path leading at right-angles from the Lord Derby Road path to the first of these buildings. It's at this point where the paths meet that I took the photos - if you look towards Hillside Road, more or less straight along the line of the path, you can see Jodrell Bank on the horizon on a clear day. It's best to go in the morning rather than later in the day as the sun will have moved across by the afternoon and made it difficult to see, particularly if you want to take a photo.

Another good place to get a good view and picture from is just up the road from The Rising Moon, Matley Lane. On the opposite side is a footpath follow it up a while until it come to a farm gate and stile.. the gate is a great place to rest your camera .. good views of the airport as well can be seen from there.

Leasing rights will forever be the cheaper in the two, because with leasing rights, the producer
still owns full rights on the instrumental.
I'm gonna discuss a number of subjects including where to buy beats online that you simply own, why it is advisable to own your individual tracks above all, yes, how you can promote yourself. Back in the day the musical process was completely different.
