Rolvenden Mill is a post mill built on a single storey brick roundhouse. A windmill is believed have stood on this spot from at least 1596 but the current mill probably dates back to 1772. It probably went out of commercial use in the last decade of the nineteenth century. Following an extended period of disuse and the mill falling into disrepair it was fully restored in 1955.
