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 .

Good views of 2 disappeared landmarks on cards 2 and 3 - the cemetery chapel and the gasworks. Brilliant.
