Dove's entry for the Goring bells

Goring was originally a ring of six bells, but eight new bells were cast in 1929 by Mears and Stainbank. The 3 from the ring of six is now hung for chiming only, and the 4 hangs in the church, but cannot be rung. The new tenor weighs 8-0-21, and the bells are in A major.
