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 .

This is something that was special that we have lost. Losing a pub is nothing compared with losing a Sunday School or a church.

Very true but they are all parts of the community that are sadly fast disappearing.

I don't think Kathleen is right in what she says. To those people who wouldn't dream of going into a church, the pub is probably an important focus for fellowship and support, and to lose it could be traumatic.
