What links
A key
A type of hound
A place of worship
And a house where an old lady now resides.

Being British should be an advantage in solving this.

Key: Skeleton? Musical? Brass? Yale?
Hound: Basset? Beagle? Blood?
Place of worship: Church? Chapel? Cathedral? Synagogue? Mosque? Temple?
Old woman's residence: Shoe? Bank of England?

Is the Bank of England a house of worship? Mammon?

Are these all things that have appeared on British currency?

Yes, that would make sense -

Elizabeth Fry, who brought in Prison Reform, was on the five pound note

Charles Darwin, who is on the Ten pound note, sailed on The Beagle

I can't remember if Christopher Wren was ever on the notes, but if he was, ti would be because of St Paul's Cathedral

The notes are always signed by the Chief Cashier of the Bank of England

Correct, they are all images on British currency. The key is woven into the design of the five pound note. It was originally the key to Newgate prison presented to Elizabeth Fry for her works, as Stephen has mentioned in prison reform.
Darwins ship the Beagle appears on the ten pound note.
On the £20 note the cathedral is actually Worcester where Sir Edward Elgar who features on the note was organist.
And finally on the £50 note there is an image of the house of Sir John Houblon, who was the first governer of the bank of England. The site of his original house is now where the current Bank of England stands.
By the way Stephen, Sir Christopher Wren used to appear on the now defunct £1 note.
Well done Sapient.
