Streatley, Berks. and Goring, Oxon come readily to mind. about 1/3 mile 
by road, rather less by crow, but they are in the same diocese. I guess 
that there will be several cases that fulfil that requirement too, but I 
am not really sure what point you were making. There are cases of two 
churches in the same churchyard; e.g Willingale Spain and Willingale 
Doe, although unsurprising both are in the same county; Essex.
