Is there somewhere where you can identify old streams or wells that may have existed ?

NB/ The site where this pic comes from also explains how to talk to a tree, so you may wish to think about other options first.

That might be a better option.

Have you tried looking at www.old-maps.co.uk ?

They will usually have maps dating back a hundred or so years and I have used them to track culverts etc on sites I have worked on.

The older Ordnance Survey maps will have them marked. I'm not sure how easy it is to get a look at them though. Your local library might be able to help (assuming it still exists) or OS themselves.
