Geography

 

The village of Vignacourt is located in the heart of Picardie 110 km from Lille and 160 km from Paris.

The south of the territory is crossed by the A16 motorway since the 90s. The construction of this highway has been the subject of preventive archaeological research.

The Brunehaut causeway passes south of the town. It crosses the forest whose area was formerly much larger. This ancient Roman road connected Amiens to Boulogne.

The old railway line ran northeast of the village, near the grain elevator. Its use has continued for the transport of goods but it is now permanently closed. And it is an unfortunate situation for the environmental concerns because many students or pupils go to Amiens every day to follow their course and many employees go to work in the industrial area of Amiens by car.
