Tibberton is a village in Worcestershire, England. It is located around 4 miles north-east of Worcester and less than a mile from junction 6 of the M5 motorway. The Worcester and Birmingham Canal passes just to the north of the village.

Tibberton was once known as Tidbrichtingtone and formerly belonged to the bishop of Worcester's manor of Northwick. Ownership was subsequently passed to the Priory of Worcester. [2]

The unusual dedication of Tibberton's Church of England parish church to St. Peter ad Vincula [3] ("St. Peter in Chains") is derived from the ancient Basilica of San Pietro in Vincoli in Rome. A poem was associated with the church stating "A stone church, a wooden steeple. A drunken parson, a wicked people." [4]
