1 French Land Register data, which excludes lakes, ponds, glaciers > 1 km² (0.386 sq mi or 247 acres) and river estuaries.2 Population without double counting: residents of multiple communes (e.g., students and military personnel) only counted once.
The commune is situated on the D211 and D69 roads, some 13 miles (21 km) west of Amiens, in the valley of a small stream called the St.Landon.
By a decree of 19 September 1972, the two communes of Dreuil-lès-Molliens and Molliens-Vidame were combined into one, Molliens-Dreuil.
Molliens was first a commune in 1209 and was under the jurisdiction of the seigneurs of Picquigny from the twelfth century right up until the French Revolution, as was the neighbouring village of Dreuil.
