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 .

St George's Church Tower Views

I was lucky enough to get permission last week to ascend the bell tower of St George's Church in Hyde. It was a wee bit hairy in parts , but was well worth the effort. I managed to take a number of photo's both inside and out. I have posted about 14 below, I will let the viewers guess where they are, because some of them I'm not sure myself.

Thank you so much for these stunning views, and for being brave enough to climb St George's tower to get them. How huge the spires are from up there! Love the ones over the town centre where Brownson's tower - Woolworths - is easily recognisable, along with the back of the Theatre Royal contrasting with its new neighbour, the Mosque. Wonderful.
