Gueschart is a commune in the Somme department in Picardie in northern France. It was the target of bombing raids during the Second World War aimed at destroying nearby V1 launch sites,[1] whose foundations can still be seen on the south-west outskirts of the village, near the D938.


Gueschart is situated on the D938 road, a mile from the banks of the river Authie, the border with the Pas-de-Calais, some 14 miles (23 km) northeast of Abbeville.
