On Monday 22nd August 1870 William Barwick was summoned before the magistrates by Superintendant Ware of on Thursday 11th August, suffer two common prostitutes to assemble in his house, contrary to the King's Lynn Waterworks Borough Improvement Act 1859.
Prostitute Rose Barker said that she had lived at the TOWER for about a month, paying 1s a week for lodging. Sarah Ann Beavis said she was not an unfortunate, but also resided at the house paying 1s a week. Both ladies admitted that they took men upstairs and paid for the use of the room when they came down.
The Superintendant said that house was used very little for the sale of beer, it was simply a brothel.
In spite of Mr. Barwick saying he had turned out the two ladies, the Bench decided to fine him £1 and costs of £1 10s, which was paid.
