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 .

Gower Hey Wood ?

I believe the following photo to be taken in Gower Hey Wood with King George Road in the background. 
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Great photo, its definitely Gower Hey and I spent many happy years there, paddling, picnicing with a bottle of water and jam and bread sandwiches. Also hours and hours of fun on the swing park. Lovely memories Joyce Jones-nee Howarth.
