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 .

Oakfield Primary

This class photo was taken at Oakfield Primary School in 1963.
The teacher was Miss Jones, next to her, in the fourth row from
the front, is Steven Heginbotham. Third from left in that row is
myself, and at the far right of the row is Graeme Green.

Mrs Clegg was the Headmistress, she had previously been at 
St. Mary's School just up the road.

One of the most vivid memories I have of my time at Oakfield
is of the sickly smell of tobacco wafting over from Senior Service !
