GRR useless information

michael
Some lightermen had trouble remembering the bridges so they would make up a mnemonic to remember the bridges by. One was ‘how pleasant are very long worms when brothers lend them’. That would stand for Hammersmith, Putney, Albert, Vauxhall, Lambeth, Westminster, Waterloo, Blackfriars, London and Tower.

The trouble is - wrong way round for the GRR! Anyone know a mnemonic for the bridges going upriver?
