In 1794 Richard Bacon issued a halfpenny token showing Norwich Castle on one side and a hanging fleece on the other with the words GOOD TIMES WILL COME.
The edge of the token gave his name and the address as Cockey Lane.

 Address as 5 Bridewell Alley in 1851.

Mr. Barley purchased a house in Bedford Street and obtained a licence, under the name of the STANLEY ARMS on 23rd August 1858, he did however keep the licence of the GOLDEN FLEECE as well.

In a note dated 17th December 1858, Mary Barley thanked her Friends and Public for the liberal Patronage bestowed upon her late Husband and informed them that she intended carrying on the business.

A notice was published 18th December 1858 asking all those in debt to the late Christopher Barley, Wine & Spirit Merchant, to pay Mrs Mary Barley, and those having claims against the deceased, to send their particulars forthwith.

At the February 1906 licensing sessions Police Inspector Windsor objected to licence renewal on the grounds that `The interior made it totally unsuitable to be a Public House. It was in a congested area with 23 other public houses within 200 yards and was not required to meet public needs'.

Licence provisionally refused Wednesday 7th February 1906 and referred to Compensation.
Closed under Compensation 23.08.1907
