This is a photograph I took probably in the early 1980's on Werneth Low looking over Hattersley and the old tower blocks with Mottram Church towards the right-hand side. That's Beryl in the foreground, and I think it's Hobson Moor in the background.
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 .
