Description

Bouzincourt is a commune in the Somme department in Hauts-de-France in northern France. The name Bouzincourt is derived from the words for forest (bosquet) and the typical Picardy village suffix '-court' . It was therefore a wooded village.

Geography

Bouzincourt is situated on the junction of the D938 and D20 roads, some 18 miles (29 km) northeast of Amiens.

Places of interest

The church of St. Honore was destroyed during World War I but reconstructed in 1920 in the shape of a bullet. The tower is 36m high. The stained-glass windows were restored by l'École de Nancy, and are worthy of attention. The ‘muches’, man-made tunnels where the population hid during times of war.
