The Grade II-listed church of St Peter's in Bishop Auckland, near Durham - where comedian Arthur Stanley Laurel, one half of the legendary comic duo Laurel & Hardy, was christened in 1891 - is on the market at £295,000.  Plans to convert the church into a six-bedroom home have been approved in the past and the council has indicated that it might approve of demolishing the vestry to create even more space.  Just three hours from London by train, the church offers living space spread over 8,000sq ft, almost eight times larger than the average 1,100sq ft UK home (Evening Standard)
