So gald to see the word 'twitten' used in this piece, if I remember correctly this is very much a local word used for such an alley way. I am not sure of its origion but feel it must come from a shortening of something like, way between.

Hi Ken. Thought this might be of interest. I'm producing a short film on The Lanes currently and from my research, the word Twitten is still without a known definitive origin. However, it's said that it's either (as you quite rightly suggested) a cross between Betwix and Between, or perhaps from the German word Svisshon meaning between. That's most like not how it's spelt, but I've gone for the phonetic option.
