London’s Many Bridges: The Battersea Bridge 1

Thames_Whale_Battersea_Bridge

What is the very first thing that you think of when you think about London – for me, it is all of the sights that are out and around there.  Honestly, London has one of many bridges in the world – twelve different ones actually and all of them are beautiful looking and a fantastic sight for you to see!  That is what we are going to talk about in the next few blogs – the many bridges of London!

The first bridge up is the Battersea Bridge and my, what a breathtaking bridge this one is!  Although in the 18th century the Battersea Bridge was actually attached to another bridge, the Chelsea Bridge, the construction of a wooden bridge from 1771 – 1772 and actually allowed the pedestrians and wagons to cross the Thames.

This bridge actually was replaced in 1886 – 1890 with the Battersea Bridge that you see today!
