5th Birthday Here With My Grandparents

About this photo

Hyde Hall was probably given to Geoffrey de Mandeville after the Norman Conquest. It passed down through the Jocelyn family, whose monuments can be seen in the church of St Mary the Great. Hyde Hall was extended in 1806 and completely refurbished in 1869. When part of the property was sold in 1983 for £80,000, Hyde Hall was described as 'a magnificent mansion enjoying 40 acres of maintained ground'.
