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 .

Another disappeared shop.

Number 2 Stockport Road used to be a hairdressers in the 1960's and 70's and has also been, to my knowledge, a secondhand shop....Does anyone else know anything about it?

Yet another business that has disappeared into the depths of time.

Mid 1970's when it was a Hairdressers.

Business closed and for sale.

2012 now a house.
Also, the shop to the right used to be a sweetshop called Bowlers circa  1950-70's . It then became Beryls. Alas, now also housing.

Bowlers sweetshop was great!It had 2 shop windows if I remember correctly.
They used to sell a good selection of sweets and ice creams which were in the shop next door. They were a lovely family.
