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 .

Postcard from home...

Todays post is short and sweet...

It is a postcard of the crossroads at the top of Joel Lane and Werneth Low Road. Circa 1960's.

Who remembers the old shop ?

I remember the shop very well and could never understand why it closed. In the early 50s when I started Holy Trinity School there were twin sisters in my class who lived there - Christine and Mary Blackwell. They didn't stay long though as the family moved from the area. Does anyone know when the shop closed?

I remember walking up Joel Lane to the shop in the 1950's.
A crowd of us young people would go after afternoon Sunday School at Stockport Road Methodists and sit in the little side room after buying cold drinks.
A great place to weigh up the boys you fancied!
