Boddington was the first computerised communication centre in the 1950s when it was run by the British Army. The tradition of computerised relay communications has continued to the present day. The station closed on 14 December 2007. However, as at 2015, Alan Turnbull - editor of the startling secretbases.co.uk - has used satellite imagery to demonstrate that the officially closed RAF Boddington has in fact been subject to secret military upgrades. 
The station was established in 1940 as an army telephone exchange operated by the Auxiliary Territorial Service under the guard of the Gloucestershire Regiment. It was later controlled by the Royal Signal Corps before passing to the Royal Air Force.
