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 .

Maypole Dairy Wagon


Steam Powered Wagon
Made By Edwin Foden of Sandbach

I would have liked to have seen this making it's way through Hyde, a hundred years ago this would have been their 'White Van Man'.

Was there a Maypole shop in Hyde, t'other half says that there was one in Denton?

Gorgeous machine, I bet it weighed a bit, those back wheels alone look like they weighed a ton each?

The Maypole shop stood just lower down from the arcade on Market street.
