  • Goring-by-Sea is a neighbourhood of the Borough of Worthing in West Sussex, England, about 2 miles (3.2 km) 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. The English Martyrs Catholic Church, dedicated to the English-Catholic Martyrs, has a copy of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, painted by Gary Bevans. St Mary's, the Anglican parish church, was originally built c. 1100 CE as the Church of Our Blessed Ladye of Gorynge and was rebuilt in 1837 by Decimus Burton. Goring is served by Goring-by-Sea railway station and is thought to have been the inspiration for the name of the character Lord Goring in Oscar Wilde's play An Ideal Husband. Oscar Wilde stayed in a cottage in Goring in the summer of 1893, and in "De Profundis" mentions Goring as a place where he stayed with Lord Alfred Douglas alongside with Torquay, London and Florence. The mixed pebble and sand beach is popular for a wide variety of watersports including kitesurfing. Pete Townshend of The Who recorded the beach sounds for the band's album Quadrophenia on Goring beach. (en)
  • Goring-by-Sea est un quartier du district de Worthing, dans le Sussex de l’Ouest, en Angleterre. Il se situe environ 3,2 km (2 miles) à l’Ouest du centre de la ville de Worthing. On pense que la dénomination Goring signifie soit « le peuple de Gāra », soit « le peuple de la bande de terre formant un coin ». Généralement connu sous le nom de « Goring », le suffixe « by-Sea » (sur mer) a été ajouté pour le différencier de Goring-on-Thames dans l’Oxfordshire. L'église catholique de la localité, dédiée aux martyrs anglais, possède une reproduction du plafond de la Chapelle Sixtine, réalisée par Gary Bevans. L'église paroissiale anglicane, St Mary, a été érigée aux environs du XIIe siècle apr. J.-C., puis reconstruite en 1837 par Decimus Burton. (fr)
