See details for Y Bwlwarcau.
Keep walking up the hill, past Caer Blaen Y Cwm and Moel Ton-Mawr.
Continue through the fields keeping the trees to your right.
Just before the trees end there is a metal field gate giving access to a track through the trees. Walk along the track a short distance and you will come to a clearing on the right. This is the home of the Danish Camp.
It is about another 10 minutes walk on from Moel Ton-Mawr.

Passed several sheep skulls on the way which was a bit strange.

Very little to see. Faint outline of a bank.
If you weren’t specifically looking for it you wouldn’t have known it was here.
Judging by the ferns if you came in the summer you definitely wouldn’t be able to see anything (except for ferns of course!)

Don’t bother – not worth the effort.

COFLEIN doesn't have a lot to say either:
'An oval enclosure, c.45m NE-SW by 36m, defined by a bank and, possibly, a ditch'.
