Thanks for responses. If nothing else, this shows the importance of having records of what is up every tower. There's probably no way of identifying this bell at all.

Both John Greenhough and I, at seperate times, have tried to view the bell but got no further than the GF level from which, the small bell (guesstimated to be somewhere around 1cwt-ish) was swung.

Ladder access is required to get higher in the tower and no ladder is stored at the Church. St Mary, Grimehills (near Hoddlesdon) was built in 1851, and is a bit isolated with not many buildings/dwellings close to it.
