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 Hyde Club

The following photos were sent to us by Rachel Birch.
They were taken by one of the clubs members.

The Hyde Club is situated on Bowling Green Street.


 As mentioned in a previous post, it is also known as The Gentleman's Club and also The Top Club.

It was founded in the early 1890's as a social club for the gentry of the town. 




It looks like it is still a great place for a drink, chat and ,of course, a game of bowls !

Many Thanks Rachel. :)
