RAF Woodcote was built in 1941 and established in 1942 and has been described as an Equipment Dispersal Depot, an Equipment Distributing Depot, a Ground Equipment Depot, a Dispersed Aircraft Depot; all as part of its role as a Maintenance Unit. In fact its purpose throughout was a Maintenance Unit whose role, which is described later on, diminished in its twilight years. It was known as 70MU under the control of No.40 Group, Maintenance Command. After the war it became part of 3 MU Milton and was known as '8 Site 3 MU' and then '7 Site 3 MU'. Finally it was closed in 1959 when it no longer served a practical purpose.

There isn't many building left of this place except a on the Former Headquarters site on Long Toll in Woodcote.
Most of the buildings have been demolished over the years.
