News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Those GoogleEarth aerial photos of Kent seem to be from the 1944-1945 time frame, roughly, so D-Day-related depots are certainly a possibility.

RARDE Fort Halsted is situated to the North of Sevenoaks, the area shewn in the photo is to the South West and comprises a large area of woodland including Whitley Forest and Millbank Woods.  I believe the area was occupied (at least in part) by Canadian Troops prior to the D Day landings.

cptpies. In the late 60's, I used to call on the Royal Armament Reasearch Development Establishment near Sevenoaks. Never saw it from the air so don't know just how big or its shape, so a possibility?
