Hi Bryan, 
                That's my idea for my book, "knowing were every bell in every tower in the World"
The Chimes, One, Two & Three bell towers are almost forgotten & totally abandoned
but this is the history of bell-ringing and i have have spend 12 years reaseaching every
tower in the world, my new book will be out on May 10th 2012,
18,146 Bell Towers in 159 Countries, 590 pages, A5 Hardcover,


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.
