Boddington was the first computerised communication centre in the 1950s when it was run by the Army. The tradition of computerised relay communications has continued to the present day. The station closed on 14 December 2007.
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.
