Became the TOWER
and then the CROWN by 1903 ( Closed c1915 )
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.
