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 .

Lovely View number 2

After yesterdays beautiful postcard of Bottoms Hall Wood from 1916,  I thought I would show how Hyde still has many beautiful places in 2012.
