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 .

The Bricklayers

Photobucket

A photo looking down Reynold Street showing the Bricklayers Pub.
It is the white building on the extreme left.
Another of our "lost" pubs, of which there are too many now.

Dave took this picture of the Bricklayers Arms when it was still recognisable as an ex-public house.

I've not got a photo of the Bricklayers when it was still a going concern but I've got one of it which I took just before demolition which I'll send to you.

I got a good ticking off from my Dad when somebody split on me for going in the Bricklayers for a few pints when I was under age. My Dad said that the clout was not for drinking under age it was because I could have got the landlord in trouble. I soon found watering holes further afield. Happy days!
