An hospital for decayed fishermen

We came across this building in Great Yarmouth recently. It looks like a row of alms houses around a courtyard behind an iron gate.

The plaque below the pediment ...

... reads "An Hospital for Decayed Fishermen founded by The Corporation 1702"

I wonder what a decayed fisherman looks like! A rather odd adjective to use :)
