Thièvres is a commune in the Somme department in Picardie in northern France.

Geography[edit]

The commune is situated 17 miles (27 km) north of Amiens, on the D1 road. The village is set right on the border between the departments of the Somme and Pas-de-Calais, which creates two communes with the same name, with a postal code of 62 (Pas-de-Calais) and both the arrondissement and canton in Pas-de-Calais.

The nineteenth-century church was built in the territory of the Pas-de-Calais.

Thièvres also stands at the confluence of the rivers Authie and Kilienne.
