Coordinates: Tibberton and Cherrington is a parish in the Telford and Wrekin borough of Shropshire, England.
A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.
In England, a civil parish is a type of administrative parish used for local government, they are a territorial designation which is the lowest tier of local government below districts and counties, or their combined form, the unitary authority. Civil parishes can trace their origin to the ancient system of ecclesiastical parishes which historically played a role in both civil and ecclesiastical administration; civil and religious parishes were formally split into two types in the 19th century and are now entirely separate. The unit was devised and rolled out across England in the 1860s.

The civil parish was originally formed by a merger of Tibberton and Cherrington, two parishes of the pre-1974 Wellington Rural District. They had both originally been townships of the manor, and later parish, of Edgmond. The rivalry between the outlying townships of this parish was expressed in a local rhyme, recorded by Shropshire folklorist Charlotte Burne during the 19th century:
In England, a township is a local division or district of a large parish containing a village or small town usually having its own church. A township may or may not be coterminous with a chapelry, manor, or any other minor area of local administration.
Manorialism was an essential element of feudal society. It was the organizing principle of rural economy that originated in the Roman villa system of the Late Roman Empire, and was widely practiced in medieval western and parts of central Europe as well as China. It was slowly replaced by the advent of a money-based market economy and new forms of agrarian contract.
Various versions of the rhyme - the version above was from Tibberton - were often used to tease the residents of neighbouring villages, or when couples from outlying townships were married in the parish church. People from Edgmond told her that "chats" meant "gossips", and a Tibberton resident explained that the residents of their village were known for their unusually dark complexions, hence "tawnies" ("this is true as regards the only family I had any particular knowledge of", remarked Burne).
