A ginnel is the walk way that goes between houses connecting streets together. they are usually poorly lit and are full of chavs/children who want to drink and smoke somewhere dark. its what we say in manchester, and it doesnt come up in predicitve text.
on the phone "just walking down the ginnel to your house, had to ring incase some chavs beat me up".
