  • The usual pronunciation of the English place is /ˈgrenɪtʃ/. The BBC Pronunciation Guide (from memory) gives that second after /ˈgrɪnɪdʒ/, their principle being to give the local pronunciation first, so presumably that's what the locals say more. Dickens puts the same pronunciation in the mouth of a somewhat rough character in The Old Curiosity Shop: 'But I should say that if he turns up anywhere, he'll come ashore somewhere about Grinidge to-morrow, at ebb tide, eh, mate?'
