It is situated south of Badsworth and north of North Elmsall and is part of the SESKU (South Elmsall, South Kirkby, Upton) area. The village is also in the WF9 postal area (Pontefract) and very close to the South Yorkshire boundary.
A former coal mining community, regeneration is in process as a housing overflow for the more expensive areas of Doncaster and Pontefract.
In the 1960s the village was in its prime due to the strong mining community and retail outlets such as "Mr Farthings" Chemist and "Mr Kings" news agents.
