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

They are certainly modern, they show on the 2015 screen grab but are not visible on the 1940s version

What they are however I can't even begin to guess :)

Blue Bell Hill barrows ?

Took a walk along the top if Bluebell Hill today and accidentally ended up in the Robin Hood pub there. Saw something on leaving that confused me ? Turn left out of the pub driveway back onto Common Road and there will be an odd shaped field on the right. In this field are about 18 small mounds. Each looks like it is about 8 feet long, with prominent stones poking out of one end. They look like they could be some kind of ancient burial mounds?

Fast forward and back home, had a look on satellite view. They are in three neat rows and evenly spaced. In fact so even and preserved, that they are unlikely to be that ancient.

Does anyone have any idea what they are?
