We can take it it should be within a 22.5ish mile radius circle of Paggers.

And the answer to the quiz is
Spoiler: show
St Lawrence Church Steppingley
temp2.png
Built of local red-brown sandstone excavated at Green End, Maulden, the church is an example of the Early Decorated and Perpendicular styles of 14th century architecture. It consists of a chancel, nave, vestry, north aisle and a western tower containing four bells. The broad and regular tower is supported by buttresses which terminate half-way up each wall. An embattled newel-turret rises above the tower and below the embattlements are four gargoyles, one at each corner. The register of the church dates from 1562.

It was rebuilt in 1860 on the site of an earlier church, which collapsed when repairs were undertaken to rectify an outward leaning wall. The new church was designed by the architect, Henry Clutton, who also designed the Romanesque church at Woburn, and the rebuilding was financed by the Duke of Bedford and the rector.

It was restored in 1912 by the Duke of Bedford and in the course of excavations in the chancel, 531 English and Scotch silver coins of 13th century were found. It is thought that these were offerings of patients of a former rector, John de Schorne, who acquired fame for his healing powers.

Good effort Mick I suspected some would be hard to get top of the head. If you check with the spoiler 8 of the TOH were right, the 2 researched right, and 4 on your list not right.

Yes Mick 2 left now. One of them I know from being one of the first to plug a biodiesel blend, and their little tankers occasionally motor round these parts.

The other one is at a supermarket we use occasionally.
