Estrée-Wamin is a commune in the Pas-de-Calais department in the Hauts-de-France region of France.

Geography[edit]

A farming village situated 20 miles (32.2 km) west of Arras at the junction of the D339 and D23 roads.

It is one of many villages in the north of France bearing the name Estrées. The etymology of the name is from strata (cognate of English "street"), the word for the stone-layered Roman roads in the area (some of which turned into modern highways). Hence Estreti, village on the road which developed into Estrées.
