First published in Winchester

THE history of Winchester’s oldest suburb is the subject of a new book out this month.

Hyde: From Dissolution to Victorian Suburb published by Victorian Heritage Press is the result of four years research by Dr Chris Grover, an academic at Winchester University.

Dr Grover, a senior lecturer in the University’s Faculty of Business, Law and Sport,will give a free public lecture about Hyde’s history at the launch at Winchester Business School, West Downs, Romsey Road, on November 28.

The event will be attended by Torquil Sligo-Young, a direct descendant of William Barrow Simonds, MP for Winchester from 1865 to 1880.

Copies of books will be presented to representatives of local organisations who have helped with the preparation of the book, sponsored by The William Allen Young Charitable Trust.
