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 .

Silver Jubilee 1935

As we are about to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee, here is a medal to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George V and Queen Mary in 1935 .

Sent in to us by Ceecee.
Many thanks :)



I wonder whether anything like this has been commissioned  by Tameside for  Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee?

Thanks Ceecee
Always nice to see how our old Hyde Council got involved and helped to make history more interesting for us now.
