Nouvion (or sometimes Nouvion-en-Ponthieu) is a commune in the Somme department in Hauts-de-France in northern France.

Geography[edit]

Nouvion is situated 10 miles (16 km) north of Abbeville, between the Somme estuary and the forest of Crécy, on the D1001 (ex-N1 national) departmental road junction with the departmental road D111.

Railway[edit]

Nouvion had a station on the Noyelles/Forest-l'Abbaye branch of the Réseau des Bains de Mer. It opened on 24 August 1892, and closed on 10 March 1947, although the line itself remained open for freight until 1 February 1951.

Media[edit]

Nouvion is the setting for the BBC sitcom 'Allo 'Allo! However, no scenes were filmed in the town, with filming instead taking place in Norfolk in England, UK.[2]
