I'm familiar with the spelling ginnel, but I've never seen this. Nothing obvious on Google Books from the brief glance I gave it... Widsith 13:38, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Not many cites at all but I liked this one:

Okay, when was the last time you outran a cop? Group: Seventy in a forty zone gets you a police escort but as I knew the area (Leeds, Alwoodley) really well, I knew where the guinels were ( a guinel is a walkway between two houses). There's a great one that runs near where my cousin now lives. There's nothing but curves to it so the cops couldn't get a straight view ...
