It contains Imjin Barracks, the home of HQ ARRC, which moved from Germany in 2010. Previously, up to 2008, it was best known for the RAF Camp, RAF Innsworth, to its close, the home of the RAF Personnel and Training Command, before its colocation with RAF Strike Command and move RAF High Wycombe. Innsworth like its neighbouring village, Churchdown, is split into two halves: the military housing side which ends at the junction of Ward Avenue and Swallow Crescent and also Thompson Way again with Swallow Crescent.
The village now has its own Community Hall on Rockery Road next to the Junior's School, which is home to the village youth club and also to the bingo club which is held every Sunday evening and also many Severnvale Housing Association drop-in clinics. The village campaigned for many years to the local H/A and Borough Council for the Hall.
Many of the H/A homes in Innsworth were originally pre-fabricated buildings built in the mid- to late 1940s after the Second World War; although these were only intended to remain standing for two decades, they have now been up for close to 75 years, and have been bricked on the outside. These houses and bungalows are all on roads named after birds; even new housing developments in the village have followed the tradition with Tern Court at the north of Rockery Road and also Falcon Close 100 yards down the Rockery Road. Innsworth also used to be home to a local pub called The Bullfinch, more commonly known as "The Bully", which was closed down in late 2004 and knocked down in 2010/2011 to be replaced with social housing by Severnvale Housing Association, the old sign for the pub can still be found standing in pride of place at the top of Bullfinch Way and its junction with Innsworth Lane.
