: Can anyone tell me the difference (if any?) between a ginnel,a snicket, and a snickelway?
: I've been in Yorkshire a few years now, and no-one seems sure!!

a snickelway is an alley-like passageway from one street to another

doesn't specify whether covered or uncovered

runs behind shops in particular.
