I'm getting an oil leak from a sensor (I think) which connects to the block into which the oil filter screws, just above two pipes.

It's one drop every 3-5 seconds when engine idles, and about one liter per twenty miles normal driving.

Any help/info greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the oil pressure sender unit. It'll only get worse, so quick replacement is in you and your engine's best interest :D

There's no need for that. Just unscrew it like a sparkplug and pop a new one in. I think the sender costs around $10-20.
