The commune is situated on the D7 road, near the banks of the river Noye, some 8 miles (13 km) south of Amiens. The Roman road, the Chaussée Brunehaut ran through the village and gives it its name (Estreti, which means village on the street or more precisely 'village on the road).
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.
|From the year 1962 on: No double counting—residents of multiple communes (e.g. students and military personnel) are counted only once.|
