River Dun, near Dunbridge

The River Dun is a tributary of the River Test in southern England. It rises to the south-east of Salisbury near West Grimstead, Wiltshire and flows east into Hampshire before joining the Test at Dunbridge near Kimbridge.[1] The Dun crosses the county border as it passes between the villages of West Dean and East Dean.[2] The Test ultimately drains into Southampton Water.

The valley is followed by the Southampton to Salisbury railway and bore the route of the Salisbury and Southampton Canal between Kimbridge and East Grimstead, marked as (the) Old/old canal on many modern maps.
