Photo Gallery: GinnelWatch – time to show us your ginnels!
We love a good ginnel at Northern Soul. But, depending on where you’re from, there are all sorts of words for what essentially amounts to an alleyway, including jennel, snicket, vennel, gennel, jitty and jetty.
So, if you have a favourite ginnel, please share it with us. You can do this via our Twitter, Facebook or Instagram pages and your snaps will be featured on our weekly ginnel photo gallery. Following on from last week’s submissions, we’ve got images from all over the country – and further- to share with you lovely lot. So, what are you waiting for? Get your smartphones at the ready and #ShowUsYourGinnels.
