Water in England
By Dorothy Hartley
Published by Macdonald, 1964
Amazon in the US has copies
* *Unknown Binding:* 416 pages

I bought a hardback copy while we were Cambridge in 84-85 so I suspect
is this edition.
It's worth listing in the Florilegium and interlibrary loan should be
able to supply you with a copy.
