Dorothy Hartley who wrote Food in England
did a volume on water.

Water in England
By Dorothy Hartley
Published by Macdonald, 1964
435 pages

Amazon in the US has copies

    * *Unknown Binding:* 416 pages
    * *Publisher:* Macdonald and Jane's (1978)

I bought a hardback copy while we were Cambridge in 84-85 so I suspect 
my copy
is this edition.

It's worth listing in the Florilegium and interlibrary loan should be 
able to supply you with a copy.
