London bridge is falling down - Traditional English Nursery Rhyme

(The 'London Bridge is falling down' Nursery Rhyme is based on one of the most famous landmarks in London. First built by the Romans in the first century, the first London Bridge was made of wood and clay and was fortified or re-built with the various materials mentioned in the children's nursery rhyme. Many disasters struck London Bridge, however it survived the Great Fire of London in 1666, although its arches and foundations were weakened. In fact, buildings with thatched roofs were banned in London following the Great Fire of 1666 and this ban was only lifted with the construction of the New Globe Theater in 1994).
