I had to look up "Ginnel" Result: English dictionary definition of ginnel: - dialect Northern English a narrow passageway between buildings.
The Scottish equivalent is probably "vennel" so not far apart!
I like how you have used the narrow opening to frame the famous ruin.

Strictly speaking the one in the picture is a tunnel.
The word seems to be dying out mainly due to the large scale demolition in the areas where they occurred but also because of the standardisation and americanisation of English, caused, imo, by television and t'internet.
