GinnelWatch: Holiday 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.
Our lovely readers seem to agree that there’s nothing better than a good ginnel – particularly one discovered away from home. From France to Belgium to historical Scotland, we’ve got a host of lovey ginnels snapped while people are enjoying their holidays.
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. What are you waiting for? Get those cameras out and #ShowUsYourGinnels.
