The village name is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means 'west cottage'.
For many years Westcott was the location of the Rocket Propulsion Establishment, which was located on the old RAF Westcott airfield to the west of the main village. This has since been closed down, and the area is called the Westcott Venture Park. BAE Systems maintains a presence on the site (BAE Systems Environmental) which advises on the decommissioning of military sites.
