I always use the word snicket (which I think means a cut through?). Most people seem to use our garden as a snicket to get to the castle, but we haven't done any weeding this year so probably a jungle by now so feel free but go at your own risk!

That's very kind of you! If enough people cut through your garden it may well help to flatten the weeds!! Wink

Davy boy I see that one online dictionary defines "snicket" as "Partially vegetated alleyway or cut through in the north of England, usually with bollards at both ends and is poorly lit".

South of Sheffield we might probably say "path".  I now feel almost committed to finding the castle by the most straightforward route - whatever it's called!!

The word "vennel" is used for a narrow cutting in France - and in Durham and Scotland.

Did the walk this morning and didnt meet any snakes along the way lol!! Got a few photos from different places of the town and lovely harbour. Came across some wild sage and mint so know where to look next year to add to our store cupboard. Also paid a visit to our new neighbours David and Georgia Barkley who are staying in villa Bacchus who are Agni Forumsters, lovely couple shame we leaving tomorrow could have shared a bottle or two with them. They only live in neighbouring town to us back home. Thank you for my wine.

Davyboy that snicket looks far too smart for us down South! Now that we would probably call an "Alley" just like Lancashire. Big smile

Sounds like you had a really nice walk Frilly.

Aye lad.  One of them there snickets is a ginnel.  Not to be confused with an alley or an entry, mind. Thats what we say in Salford any road.

Any rate, I'll see thee.
Oh, why not. Just a small one.

Many years ago before the road went around the headland, you had to go over the hill via a dirt track. The old bar restaurant was supplied by using donkey power to carry the goods to the Cafe. You could always tell when there had been a delivery, donkey doo everywhere. One time I was using the pathway a three foot snake crossed in front of eveyone. This Greek lad explained tongue in cheek, that the snake was a lizards tail that had been chopped off whereby some eeky chap told all concerned that he was a proffessor of zooology blah blah blah and that this was an impossibility. What a spoilsport. Still I always enjoyed that walk to the Cafe and beaches. Yammas Lawrence
