Probably a County bridge of c.1820. The name refers to the proximity of the woollen factory established in 1780 on the site of Dolobran Forge. A bridge is marked here on the 1838 Tithe Map.
A bridge of two elliptical arches, the arch spans of about 12 metres and the rise about 5 metres. The bridge is of grey limestone, coursed, with slightly rock-faced finish. The voussoirs are about 600mm deep, broad, and rusticated. Each arch has a larger keystone on each face, each keystone reaching up to a large string-course at the base of the parapet. The bridge has a cutwater to the central pier on the upstream side only.
The carriageway is about 5 metres wide with a parapet of about 1.2 metres height at each side. The parapets turn out slightly at each of the four corners.
A fine bridge of the early C19 in two arches, which has retained its character.
