Bonnières is a commune in the Pas-de-Calais department in the Hauts-de-France region in northern France.


A farming village located 26 miles (41 km) west of Arras at the junction of the D115 and D114 roads.


During World War II, Bonnières was subjected to heavy Allied bombing, as the Germans had built a launch site for their V1 rockets within the commune. The village was badly damaged, but not one missile was ever launched successfully
