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 .

Trip To Blackpool
Thank you to Colin Critchlow for sharing this excellent picture of his Nan and Auntie on a day trip to Blackpool with ladies from Talbot Road Chapel in the 1930's
Looks like they were enjoying themselves.
I should think many of us have family photo's like this, and if like Colin you would like to share them please send them in. It is a great way to see how the fashions changed...
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!
