Thank you. But I think without is better in the second sentence, isn't it?
You're absolutely right.

The thing is I never provided you with any correct choices. I just gave you the three options to choose from. It so happened that you knew that without goes into the second sentence. Well done.
Obviously, going by to Brighton is not correct. The one that is correct is going down to Brighton. If you go to a place that is located in the south, you go down to it.
As to sentence #1, go by the church clock means you can trust the time it says. If the church clock says 10:30, you can take it for granted that it says the right time.
