Hi Owen,

This could be a number of things but the best way to find it is to raise the vehicle so that tire is suspended and spins freely then spin it by hand and see if you can pinpoint it.

This could be the brakes dragging, backing plate, the shroud, or just something caught between the rotor and pads.

Unfortunately, there isn't one thing I can tell you it it. If you get a recording of it and post it here, I can listen and help limit it down.
