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 .

Woodend Lane - Past and Present

Below are various postcards of Woodend Lane in Hyde.
It must have been considered a local beauty spot judging by the amount of photographs and postcards that are around.

It's nice to see the original wall still remains. It now belongs to Charnley House residential home which is the oldest residential home in Hyde.

Except for the obvious, ie the cottages being demolished, It's hardly changed at all ! A bit more overgrown maybe.
