Old London Bridge
The Story of the Longest Inhabited Bridge in EuropeBook - 2001
The story of Old London Bridge is a turbulent and varied one, spanning over 600 years from 1176 to 1832. In every period, the bridge was the focal point for war and conflict, from early Viking raids to the Civl War. In times of peace, the bridge was thriving commercial centre and an arena for many pleasures including spectacular national ceremonies, races, pageants, jousts and regattas. Thousands lived and died in the town on the bridge, a bustling community of merchants, craftsmen, thieves and rogues.
