"Cid" was the pseudonym used by a correspondent to the Huddersfield Chronicle in the 1890s.
His poetry and memorial odes began appearing in the Chronicle in 1892. In April 1894, the first of a series of lengthy descriptions of walks by "Cid" in the Huddersfield area were printed — these provide a fascinating view of how much (if at all) parts of the district have changed in the last 120 years.
He was also the author of a series of columns in the newspaper entitled "Sol, the Lockwood Goose".
The articles reveal a few details about the author:
Although his exact identity remains uncertain, one of his poems is entitled "Rockfield", which is the name of a large mansion near Beaumont Park in Lockwood. In the 1891 Census, Abraham Lee Tyas — who grew up in Kirkheaton — was residing nearby at Tyas House.
