How was he named?
Doon was named in honour of the Scottish soldiers brought to the Fens as prisoners of war in the 17th century. These soldiers built the New Bedford River (forming the Ouse Washes) and many of the other drainage works that created the modern landscape of the Fens. Doon Hill was used by the Scottish army in the Battle of Dunbar.
