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 .

Market Street - Long Lost Shops

Whilst supermarket shopping is good  because everything is under one roof, I do still miss the old days of going to lots of different shops on a Saturday, with my Mum, to get the shopping .


Woods was a very popular shop.

I think this is circa late 70's to early 80's.
Please feel free to correct me me I'm wrong.


Thanks to Diane for sending the photo to me.

Much appreciated.

Most of these are modern shops, I remember the Maypole, Duckworths, Redmands, MacFisheries, Hopkinson, Brownsons,that's old Hyde.

I think that you'll find Brownsons was covered ages ago and there are photos of Redmonds & Cec.Duckworths on the blog already..
This appears to be a blog aimed at all ages so some that are long lost to the younger generation aren't particularly ancient to you.
Its good to see all photos of Hyde anyway.
ps 35 years seems ages ago to me.
