Eastlays was completed before Tunnel Quarry and Monkton Farleigh. While the Army had been building ammunition depots the RAF had been manufacturing ammunition, and so it made sense for the RAF to have Eastlays for the storage of its own war stores.

Eastlays was sold off in 1976 with Monkton Farleigh to the same buyers, and its future was also blighted by the Planning Authorities.
