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.

Our lovely readers seem to agree that there’s nothing better than a good ginnel and have been sharing their brilliant snaps in droves. From Chorlton and Manchester to Morocco and Covent Garden, we’ve had a host of gorgeous ginnels – we’ve even shared images from as far-flung as Asia. It’s been tough to pick our favourite images from each week’s submissions, but we’ve compiled our top picks into a ginneltastic gallery. So, here they are – Northern Soul‘s Best Ginnels of 2019.

If you have a favourite ginnel, please share it with us. You can do this via our TwitterFacebook or Instagram pages and your snaps will be featured on our weekly ginnel photo gallery. What are you waiting for? Get those cameras out and #ShowUsYourGinnels.
