“In Scotland and Northern England, a wynd is a narrow lane between houses. The word derives from Old Norse venda (“to turn”), implying a turning off a main street, without implying that it is curved. In fact, most wynds are straight. In many places wynds link streets at different heights and thus are mostly thought of as being ways up or down hills.”
