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, jetty and our new favourite…a weind.
We’ve had some seriously great images – and not to mention sparked a few online conversations about what constitutes a ginnel – from Staithes, Altrincham, Knaresborough, Burnley and, erm, Athens.
Oh, and did you know the Northern Soul Awards are coming up in November? We’re going to be deciding which of your images will be crowned Ginnel of the Year as part of this year’s celebration.
So, what are you waiting for? Get those cameras out and #ShowUsYourGinnels.
