This was a 'hospital' in the older sense of a retirement home. The inscription under the clock reads 'Hospitale Sanctae et Individuae Trinitatis Grenwici' (Hospital of the Holy and Undivided Trinity, Greenwich)

Trinity Hospital
The hospital was founded as almshouses by Henry Howard, Earl of Northampton, in 1617. A board near its entrance reads: "Since 1617 it has provided a home for 21 retired gentlemen of Greenwich." The hospital was rebuilt in 1812 in its present Gothic style, and is still in use. The charity is run by Mercer.
