This building is known as the Fisherman's Hospital, essentially retirement homes face the Market Square in Great Yarmouth where for many years the fishing industry was very important. It was founded in 1702 by the Corporation of Great Yarmouth. The original intention was for almshouses to provide for what were known as 'decayed' fishermen aged over 60! In the early years some quaint regulations were in force for retired fishermen in residence. If single and wishing to marry, a retiree had to propose his bride-to-be to the governing committee! After 9pm no resident could leave the premises. Indeed this was strictly impossible because the gate was locked and one person only was in possession of the key! Aligned with Classical style pediment, a prominent, hexagonal cupola has a statue of the Apostle Peter to whom the words were spoken: 'I will make you fishers of men' (Matthew 4.19). Other features include Dutch-style gable and a low, tiled roof with several small dormer windows.
