Object ID PAE6160
Description A pencil drawing of Grampus, an ex-Admiralty 50-gun vessel allocated as a hospital ship to the (merchant) Seamen's Hospital Society in 1821, moored between Greenwich and Deptford. She was subsequently replaced by the larger Dreadnought in 1831 and the Caledonia (renamed Dreadnought) in 1857. In 1870 the facility moved ashore into the former infirmary of Greenwich Hospital, which finally closed as a residential naval almshouse in 1869 and is today the Dreadnought Building of the University of Greenwich.
