Notes NOTES: Many of the warehouses here were badly damaged and some completedly destroyed during the Great Fire of Tooley Street in 1861. The fire burnt fiercely for two days and it was two weeks before it was fully put out. Chamberlain's Wharf, built in 1862, was taken over by the adjacent Hay's Wharf in 1925. The wharves closed in 1969 and Chamberlain's and Hay's were later taken over by London Bridge Hospital which opened in 1986.
