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 .

It's a long walk up there .....  photo 57ae4da9-75b1-4909-944a-29d33a873e1b.jpg
...But all worth it for the best seat in the house !

Great photos and some nice cloud formations. A lovely day for a walk on the Low.

Born and bred in Hyde, it's a view we have taken so much for granted.
As a child, I and my friends have played up there for hours. Yet sadly now being disabled there is no way I can get up on the Low. Still got my memories, all happy ones. thank you Hydonian for the lovely pictures.

Thank you so much for these lovely photos, Has Spring finally arrived I wonder? A bit of sunshine certainly cheers everyone up! But anyway even if it rains tomorrow, or is cold, we shall still have these sunny pictures to look at of that lovely place that we are so lucky to have right here on our doorstep!
