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, jetty and our favourite…a weind.

While we’ve had to stay local due to COVID-19 restrictions, we’ve got some brilliant images from Leigh, Stretford, Chorlton and Ancoats.

So, what are you waiting for? Get those cameras out and #ShowUsYourGinnels.
