Ginnel Vision

This passage leads to the remains of the oldest dwelling house left in York. It has been dated from the few surviving bits of masonry to around 1180 making it a Norman House. The courtyard at the end of the passage was restored in 1969 by the York Civic Trust.


  1. I've been wondering what a ginnel is and now I know; something I have always loved but didn't know the it even had a special word to call it by. So . . . your post finally got my lazy self to look up the word.
