York ginnel (and a shortcut between two pubs)Neil Harrington

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 discovered all sorts of brilliant ginnel goings-on including this fantastic poem from Leeds poet, Vidyan Ravinthiran as part of the Free the Word project to mark National Poetry Day. Ginnel Fever is catching. So, here are a few more ginnel images to keep you lovely lot sated. Don’t forget to get your cameras out, take a snap and #ShowUsYourGinnels.
