Geography

The commune is situated on the D211 and D69 roads, some 13 miles (21 km) west of Amiens, in the valley of a small stream called the St.Landon.

History

By a decree of the 19th September 1972, the two communes of Dreuil-lès-Molliens and Molliens-Vidame were combined into one, Molliens-Dreuil.
Molliens was first a commune in 1209 and was under the jurisdiction of the seigneurs of Picquigny from the twelfth century right up until the French Revolution, as was the neighbouring village of Dreuil.
