Up until the 19th century Hyde wasn't really much of a town. Gee Cross was a larger village and Hyde as we now know it was only a few houses close to Hyde Hall on the banks of the River Tame.

In 1801 the district had around 3,500 inhabitants. During the Industrial revolution of the late 18th and early 19th centuries Hyde as we now know it began to take shape. The success of the cotton mills (up to 40 at one stage) in the area brought in an abundance of work. With one still in operation today. There were many will owning families including the Sidebotham, Hibbert, Horsfield and Ashton. Only recently the Ashton Brothers Mill in flower field was demolished in order to build a new housing estate. Hyde was also home to a Colliery during the industrial revolution and was prominent enough to be included in the path of the Peak Forest canal connecting Ashton-under-lyne to Marple.

Modern day Hyde is served by 6 Railway stations, the M67 motorway and a large bus station opened in 2007 at a cost of £3.7M. It has a market area next to the indoor shopping centre overlooked by the town hall and it is home the Hyde United Football team who play the home games at Ewen fields which has been used by both Manchester City and Utd over the years for reserve team games. Hyde is the home to former Boxing World champion Ricky Hatton (and his Hattons Gym health club) who grew up in nearby Hatterlsey. Werneth Low Country Park houses the Hyde War Memorial containing the 710 names of Hyde residents who died in that conflict.

The housing stock in Hyde is a real mix from 1/2 bed apartments c. £90,000 through bungalows, terraces and semis up to 5+ bed detached homes. There is a real mix too of old Victorian properties built by the mill owners during the industrial revolution and new build stock with everything in between. As you move slightly out of Hyde centre into the more rural Broadbottom and Glossop environs you can get barn conversions, Farms and equestrian centres selling into the several millions of pounds. Hyde has a thriving rental market as well with prices generally starting at £450pcm for a basic 2 up 2 down close to the centre.

Hyde is made popular these days be its convenient transport links, good schools, shopping facilities, places of worship for all faiths and of course its easy access to the countryside.
