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 .

Ring O' Bells

Here are two pictures of the Ring O' Bells pub, past and present.
The first shot is around 1910, the second, 2012.

So sad to see another of our pubs up for sale... the guide price of this being £195,000.

There will be none left in Hyde at this rate.
