Looking at the shadow it is definitely a hole in the ground. :)

Yep Cliveh.

I was trying to decide if it might have been an air raid shelter, or a building, or something, but "to me" it looks like it could have been an EWS. Also there's that white (chalk) shape to the right of it, which I guess is chalk spoil.

"Maybe?" a wartime EWS (Emergency Water Supply) site near Fort Luton, Chatham. Similar to the 'possible' EWS site in Marlborough Road, Gillingham ((http://www.kenthistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=17801.0)

1940's image from Google Earth.
