hueco de campana

bell hole = hueco de campana
Es un hueco auxiliar que se deja al enterrar tuberías, para tener acceso a ellas para reparación, otras conexiones, etc.

bell holed: sería un adjetivo para denominar un hueco que tiene dichas características.

Faltaría ver el contexto.

Espero que te sirva la respuesta

Hello María
Bell Hole
A bell hole is any hole other than a continuous trench opened for working on a buried pipeline.
A bell hole can be used to uncover sections of pipeline that might be suspect in order to x-ray
and apply ultrasonic inspection tools to detect thinning of the pipeline walls.
O sea que concretamente un bell-hole es un pozo para acceder a algo, en tu caso tuberías, pero que también podrían ser cables para una reparación.
