Blackfriars Bridge

Historic 18th-century Thames River bridge with iron arches, stone carvings & scenic views.
Built in 1869, Blackfriars Bridge gained notoriety in 1982 when Vatican bank chairman Robert Calvi was found dead on it. Calvi was embroiled in a series of financial scandals and was reputed to be a member of the “Propaganda Due” (or P2) Masonic lodge that embroiled the Italian government in scandal in 1981. Members of P2 referred to themselves as “Frati neri” or Black Friars.

Blackfriars Bridge is a road and foot traffic bridge over the River Thames in London, between Waterloo Bridge and Blackfriars Railway Bridge, carrying the A201 road. The north end is near the Inns of Court and Temple Church, along with Blackfriars station. The south end is near the Tate Modern art gallery and the Oxo Tower.
