The town lies near Portadown in a hilly rural area of the north of Co. Armagh. The railway station closed on 4th January 1965 making transport more difficult. While a quiet town, it offers some high-speed thrills such as the annual motorcycle road races. There is also an airstrip in the town affording landing and take-off facilities for small aircraft.
