1. London Bridge Information & History
A bridge has existed at or near the present site over the period from the Roman occupation of the area, nearly 2,000 years ago. The first bridge across the Thames in the London area was built of wood by the Romans around 50 AD. The bridge fell into disrepair after the Romans left. In 1014 the bridge was pulled down by the Norwegian prince Olaf, as he was aiding King Aethelred in a successful bid to divide the defending forces of the Danes who held the walled City of London plus Southwark, thereby regaining London for the Anglo-Saxon king. This episode has been thought to have inspired the nursery rhyme "London Bridge is Falling Down". The rebuilt Norman London Bridge was destroyed in 1091 by a storm. The repair was carried out by William II "Rufus" through forced labour, however it was destroyed yet again, this time by fire, in 1136. More at wikipedia | Also read barryoneoff.co.uk >
