How do people refer to the narrow walkway between or along buildings?

Previous findings

There is no published literature on this particular case of lexical variation.

Our findings

Once again there isn’t much variation outside the North, with a predominance of alley/alleyway. Within the Midlands and the North, the other variants form a few clear patterns, such as ginnel around Greater Manchester and Leeds, entry around Merseyside, and gennel around Sheffield. Just south of Sheffield, there are a cluster of jitty-users around Derby and Chesterfield. Interestingly, there are other sharp regional divides present in the North too: notice the pocket of snicket responses around Bradford despite its close proximity to ginnel-favouring Leeds.
