        Remember in your reply:

        – You can only change one letter.
        – You can use people’s christian names.
        – You have to stick to just the five letters.
        – Foreign languages are a no-no.

        Please ‘highlight’ your word then click H in yellow box above the posting window and also make size 14 typeface so it is more obvious!

                                        in the Tynesside dialect of Northeast England, a chare is a narrow medieval street or alley. Most commonly associated with #Newcastle.

                                        Many survive to this day especially around the Quayside area of the city.  BTW, "Geordie" I am told refers only to the people of the Newcastle-Gateshead area either side of the River Tyne and not the dialect.

                                        Curiously, a friend from across the Pennines referred to narrow alleys in the North to me only the other day. As she is from the Macclesfield area she mentioned "ginels", or "genells" depending where you come from in the Northwest. Apparently, alleyways are called "wynds" in Scotland and the Borders.

                                        Funny how these names were never on my radar before.

                                            Just a few miles south of Newcastle, (Billingham, Middlesbrough and at least as far as York) a narrow passageway is referred to as a "jennel". Indeed, as a child, I used to play a game that consisted of hoying clemmies up the jennel, so they bounced from side to side.

                                            (Hoy – to throw or chuck. Clemmie – a stone.)

                                                                Chert is a fine-grained silica-rich microcrystalline, cryptocrystalline or microfibrous sedimentary rock that may contain small fossils. It varies greatly in colour (from white to black), but most often manifests as grey, brown, greyish brown and light green to rusty red; its colour is an expression of trace elements present in the rock, and both red and green are most often related to traces of iron (in its oxidised and reduced forms respectively).
