Because it will be boiled you can pick it up outdoor as long as it is not wasted much (avoid fertiliser and dung washed in from farm land). Suitable are small rivers that have not passed villages or extensively used farm land, not too small lakes, or even the water butt in your backyard (the water in there should be fresh enough in Wales).
I've drank the water running off mountains and hilltops in Wales, but I wouldn't drink it from further down - most of the land is farmed in some way and I've seen plenty of dead sheep in streams
Now is it bad enough that you let somebody else kick your butts without you trying to do it to each other? Now if we're all talking about the same man, and I think we are... it appears he's got a rather growing collection of our bikes.
Many years ago, I had a house fire - saved the outside walls - and it took 6 months to rebuild. During that time, I had limited power (service pole for the builders that provided two outlets) and no water - well and septic system.
I do have a guest house that I stayed in, but, again.. no water for flushing.
There is a small creek running through the property, so, daily I would fill a large pail for flushing purposes.
I would take a 5-gallon jug to the neighbors and fill it for bathing water and coffee.
The water was heated on a portable camp stove and poured in the bathroom sink. Use a wash clothe and soap, get cleaned up.. get creative with washing your hair.
Having said that, you can survive... just get creative.
