From John Noake, The Rambler in Worcestershire, or Stray Notes on Churches and Congregations (London, 1854).

"In another of the isolated fragments of Worcestershire lying eastward of the county are the parishes and places of Shipston-upon-Stour, with Tidmington, Tredington, Newbold, and Alderminster. The first two-named were formerly townships or chapelries in the parish of Tredington, but were separated by Act of Parliament (Geo. I), Shipston becoming an independent incumbency, to which the rectory of Tidmington is now annexed."

Apparently physically located in Warwickshire, it was, at least in the 17th century, considered part of Worcestershire. Tidmington is of interest as it is the place of origin of Thomas Welles, an early governor of Connecticut (ca. 1590-1660).
