Estrée-Blanche is a commune in the Pas-de-Calais département in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France.
A farming village some to the northwest of Béthune
and west of Lille
, at the junction of the D341, D186 and the D159 roads. The small rivers Surgeon and Laquette converge at the commune.
Estrée-Blanche is found at the extreme edge of the coalmining
area of Nord-Pas de Calais. Part of its surface area was owned by the mining company, which ceased in the 1960s
. All that remains of that era are some typical miners' houses.
