This made me wonder whether the village of Ingleton, in the North-East of England and which I know well, used to be the site of a fire hill (ingle + ton, from dún, hill) or hill of alarm, on which fires used to be lit to signal danger in days gone by.
Little question for you: what other name did dún spawn, describing something found, this time, in the south-east?
