Did you know that on the 13th century Long Bridge it was a tradition to try to run across the Long Bridge in the time it takes for the bells at nearby St. Mary's church to chime midnight on New Year's Eve. The Long Bridge has 24 arches all of different sizes. The traditional explanation is that each arch was funded by a different guild, although there are no records to confirm this. Another theory is that the arches of the bridge were built over large stones in the river with each stone being one support of the arch.
