Rivers Rivers on Speed's map are drawn as wiggly lines tapering from their mouth at the coast; none are named.

Some ponds or lakes are shown, for example at Elvetham, Highclere Park. There is one at Farnborough which is a copyist's interpretation of what could be an area of marsh plotted by Norden 1595, what is now Eelmoor Marsh.
