London Bridge



London Bridge. It is possible that there was a bridge not far east of the present one in the year 43 and there have been many bridges across the River Thames here in the course of history, the fifth and latest one being opened in March 1973 and the old bridge being sold and re-erected stone by stone in Arizona. The poem which opens 'London Bridge is falling down' refers to the Battle in 1014 between King Aethelred of the English and the Danes, after which the bridge collapsed. London recorded as Londinium c.115 is a Celtic place-name probably formed from a personal name Londinos - meaning 'the bold one'.

The Underground station was opened as LONDON BRIDGE on 25 February 1900.
