History[edit]

Prior to construction of the Canal de la Somme, Saigneville stood at the southern end of a ford across the Somme estuary. Known as Blanchetaque for the white stones marking the way, the ford became the site of the Battle of Blanchetaque in 1346, during the Hundred Years' War.

Geography[edit]

Saigneville is situated 5 miles (8 km) northwest of Abbeville, on the D3 road, near the Somme canal.
