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 .

The Beauty Of Matley

I've been busy today and not had time to write up a couple of posts that I'd planned to do, so today it's some pictures that have all been taken around the Matley Lane area. I have never been disappointed with any of the walks I took around here...  it really is a beautiful place to spend time.

Barry in oz. I spent many wonderful hours as a kid looking for frogspawn, tadpoles and sticklebacks in some of the paddocks on Matley lane, also Blackberrying with the family on our sunday walk. My schoolchum lived at the farm in your photo, just past the Rising Moon, Brian Blenkinsop, and we played for hours on the farm.

Then they ruined it by building along Matley Lane. When I was small it was a lovely walk to the Rising Moon. On the way we passed a house which had a front garden full of fairies and gnomes, stone of course, but quite magical to a young child. Does anyone else remember it?
