In CB Sussex he writes, "If the bell is coeval with the church it was cast about 1050." But he doesn't say what date it would be if it wasn't!Andrew

I've mislaid my copy of Elphick's Craft of the Bellfounder.
Could anyone do me a favour and look up what he says about
the age of the ancient bell at Hardham, Sussex? I believe
he says it likely dates to around the time of the Conquest
and is probably England's oldest bell, but I'd be very
grateful if someone could check exactly what he says.
