GUEST,PMB BS: Biblical? reference: What's the origin? (17) BS: Biblical? reference: What's the origin? 17 Mar 08

In the small town of Whitwick, between Leicester on Burton-on-Trent (UK), there are two small areas (a few streets each) marked on the OS map as "City of Dan" and "City of Two Waters". I assume, given the date of the area- an early-to-mid 19th century mining town- that these are Biblical references, but I haven't found them. Anybody know where they come from, and what the original designation meant?
