A wander down the “ginnels” of Golcar

A warm afternoon so I decided to do a little tour of the “ginnels” of my home village of Golcar. For those of you who don’t know what a ginnel is, it is “a narrow passageway or alley often between terraced houses” and is a term that seems peculiar to both Lancashire and Yorkshire.

The origins of the word allegedly dates back to the 17th  century and it has been suggested that it is a corruption of the word “channels”

So with my new Sony a65 camera in hand (courtesy of Mike Guttridge) I set out to photograph the local flora and fauna and any other interesting object that came my way.

So what follows is a range of photographs taken within a half mile radius of my home
