Goring-by-Sea, West Sussex

Goring-by-Sea is a neighbourhood of the Borough of Worthing in West Sussex, England, about 2 miles west of Worthing town centre. Since 1929 Goring has been part of the Borough of Worthing. It is thought that the place name Goring may mean either 'Gāra's people', or 'people of the wedge-shaped strip of land'. Usually known as "Goring", the "by-Sea" suffix has been added to differentiate it from the village of Goring-on-Thames in Oxfordshire.
