Tithings (Tiþingna) are an administrative unit of the Commonwealth of Wessex, and are the lowest tier of administrative unit below Shires. The Shires of Wessex, are further divided into Tithings, which are synonymous with Civil Parishes in the United Kingdom. 

A Tithing can range in size from a large town, with a population of around 80,000 to a small village or collection of hamlets. The Tithing Council may designate the Tithing a Town, Village, Neighbourhood or Community. Tithings are only in place in Non-Metropolitan Shires of Wessex.
