Buire-au-Bois is a commune in the Pas-de-Calais department in the Hauts-de-France region in northern France.

Geography[edit]

A small farming commune located 25 miles (40 km) west of Arras on the D117 road, at the junction with the D102.

Buire-au-Bois is a typical rural community, comprising the village itself and the hamlet of Bachimont. Through various reasons, such as the lack of employment, many young people have moved out of the area. Many houses are being bought and used by English and Dutch francophiles.
