Glengormley Urban includes the electoral wards of Burnthill, Carnmoney, Glebe, Glengormley, Hightown, Ballyhenry & Collinbridge.   Glengormley is approximately six miles from Belfast; the sixth milestone from the city centre is located on the Ballyclare Road beside Glengormley High School.   Glengormley sits at 700 feet above sea level, and has a cold and windy climate which may be explained by the 'tunnel' of natural features running from the Antrim coast to the edge of Glengormley on the Hightown Road.
