Wordsworth grew up in the countryside and didn't see the city until the age of 18 (source).
Psalm 104 of the King James Bible praises God as He "who coverest thyself with light as with a garment." Sound familiar?
The current Westminster Bridge in London is not the same bridge that Wordsworth crossed over. The original bridge, constructed between 1749 and 1750, was replaced in 1862 (source).
