London Bridge was first constructed by the Romans in
approximately AD 46. In 1014 the bridge was destroyed by arson,
destroyed by a storm in 1091 and then destroyed by fire again in
1136. A new London Bridge was again constructed in 1831 to replace
the ageing centuries old London Bridge. In 1968 the outdated and by
