Gazeley Mill was built in 1837 by William Death, replacing a nearby post mill. The mill drove five pairs of millstones. A Gippeswyck oil engine was installed by Turners, the Soham millwrights in 1880. In 1893, a one-and-a-half-sack roller mill made by Messrs E R & F Turner of Ipswich was installed. This was driven by the oil engine, which could also drive three of the five pairs of millstones. The mill ceased work c1920 and was stripped of machinery and house converted in 1947.
