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 .

Rescued From A Skip
Our thanks go to Aidan Prince for taking the time to scan these and send them in... Aidan found this booklet in a skip years ago.. so glad he picked it out.
If you have had such a find, be it in a skip or just at the back of a drawer, then please let us know.. Publications such as the one above must still exist in drawers and cupboards and we would like very much to feature them on here. :)
If you have any pictures, stories, memories, or items from or about Hyde and you would like to share them here with other like minded Hydonians please get in touch with us. Either leave us a comment or even better email us:
Tom, Dave, Paul and I would like to say thank you to everyone for contributing to this blog in some small way - even if that means just reading it! It's been more of a success than we could ever have dreamt of and that's all down to you ! It was our intention to get Hyde "on the record" as it were and it seems to be heading in the right direction. We are very proud of Hyde and would like it's history to live on!
