The remains of four dwellings stand on a hill to the west of Branault in a field which is now worked as part of Branault Croft. These were the homes of cottar families, a cottar being someone who was given land to build on and an area to work but who had no rights on the land. When built, these cottars worked for Achateny Farm and some of the cottages were still occupied within living memory. A full description is here.
