Geography

Barenton-Bugny is located some 5 km north by north-west of Laon and 8 km south of Crecy-sur-Serre. The Autoroute des Anglais (A26 autoroute) passes through the commune and there is an exit just south of the commune to National Highway N2 which passes north-east though the commune. From National Highway N2 the commune can be accessed on road D546 going north to the village then continuing north-west to intersect the D545 going north to Barenton-Cel. The D513 also goes east from the village to Monceau-le-Waast. There is also the D967 road which passes north-south through the western edge of the commune. Apart from the village and a few patches of forest the commune is entirely farmland with no other villages or hamlets.[3]

The north-western border of the commune is delineated by the Ruisseau de Longedeau which flows into the Ru des Barentons and continues north changing its name a few times before joining the Souche river.[3]
