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.
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.
