I did wonder if proximity to the source of an important religious establishment might play a part, but from what I can gather they were churned out all over the gaff, with even the smallest village church buying them in to flog on. Or maybe your area was uncommonly healthy and/or had fertile land so there was no requirement for them?

Whp knows, but hope you get to find one :thumbsup:
Me neither, never had a sniff of one. There seems to definitely be more in some areas than others :cry:
