Humbercourt is a commune in the Somme department in Picardie in northern France.


Humbercourt is situated on the D127 road, some 16 miles (26 km) southwest of Arras and on the border with the Pas-de-Calais département formed by the Grouches valley. To the north is the Bois de Dessus, but for the most part, the district is flat farm land.


Linked with the seigneurs of the family "De Brimeu", whose coats of arms adorn the church porch, along with the Toison d'Or awarded to Jean De Brimeu for his services to the duke, Charles the Bold.
