Hyde was a county constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1885 until 1918. It was based around the town of Hyde, Cheshire.

From the 1918 general election onwards, the town has been represented in parliament through the constituency of Stalybridge and Hyde.



The constituency, officially Cheshire, Hyde Division, was created by the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 and consisted of the following parishes and townships in north east Cheshire:[1]



The Representation of the People Act 1918 reorganised constituencies throughout Great Britain. The bulk of the Hyde constituency was merged with parliamentary borough of Stalybridge to form the new seat of Stalybridge and Hyde. The Bredbury, Marple and Romiley areas passed to the Macclesfield constituency, while Offerton and Torkington were included in Knutsford.[1]
