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 last time I walked through Gower Hey it was full of dog shit, on the path and in the grass. Woodland should be left alone to grow wild like nature intended. Once people start messing about with woodland all the interest and adventure goes out of the walk.

I suppose we all have our own opinions on this. I think If things were left to go wild then people would be afraid to go down there.

I agree with Elsie on this matter, and well done to the Gower Hey Conservation Group, you really are doing a great job, most people will appreciate what you are doing for the preservation of Gower Hey woods!
