Fox & Goose Yard was situated off St. Martin's Lane to the south-east of St. Martin's Church.

The Norfolk Chronicle 28th December 1781 reported that : 

Whereas in the Morning of Sunday last, between the hours of one and four, the House of James Youngs, the sign of the Fox & Goose, in St Martin's at Oak Lane, was broke open by some Person or Persons unknown, who stole thereout about 2 pounds of Candles, a Canister of Tea, a large quantity of Eggs, a Till, containing between forty and fifty shillings, and several other articles. Whoever will give Information of the Person or Persons who committed the above Burglary, so as that he or they may be taken, and Prosecuted to Conviction, shall receive Two Guineas as Reward, from me, James Youngs.
