Brent Pelham Mill was built in 1826 by William Halden, who was at Meesden windmill in 1827. It was working until at least 1890 and was disused by 1898. At some point the mill was stripped of machinery and a water tank was built on the smock tower. The mill survives in this form today, clad in corrugated iron.
Brent Pelham Mill is a two-storey smock mill on a single-storey brick base. It had four sails and drove two pairs of millstones. The weatherboarding is vertical, and survives under the corrugated iron.
