Signpost in Gazeley

Gazeley is a village and civil parish in the Forest Heath district of Suffolk in eastern England and is part of the West Suffolk UK Parliament constituency. In 2005 it had a population of 740.[1] A house converted from a windmill survives in the village. The surnames of Gazeley, Gazley and Gazlay derive from this source.

The name Gazeley means "Woodland clearing of a man called *Gǣgi".[2]

The Icknield Way Path passes through the village on its 110-mile journey from Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire to Knettishall Heath in Suffolk. The Icknield Way Trail, a multi-user route for walkers, horse riders and off-road cyclists also passes through the village.
