List of mills in Lancashire

This is an incomplete list of the cotton and other textile mills that were located within the modern-day boundaries of the ceremonial county of Lancashire, England. The first mills were built in the 1760s, in Derbyshire using the Arkwright system and were powered by the water. When stationary steam engines were introduced they still needed water, so the mills were built along rivers and canals. As a broad rule of thumb, spinning mills were built in the south-east of the county, and weaving sheds to the north and west. Parts of Lancashire have been subsumed into Greater Manchester and Merseyside, and are not included in this list. Parts of Yorkshire are now included in this county.

Notes: When it opened in 1905 Bankfield was reputed to be the world's largest weaving shed. James Nutter was the first tenant and was responsible for 900 looms, but shared the shed with the Bradley Brothers who had another 900 looms. James Nutter and Son continued weaving at Bankfield even after they had completed Bancroft Shed, although James Nutter himself had died in 1914. Weaving stopped in 1920. It 1939 it became a shadow factory for Rover, and then taken over by Rolls Royce for aero-engine production. The 'B' in a Rolls Royce engine name (e.g. a RB211) designates it was designed in Barnoldswick.[8]

Kirk Mill   1780 Standing 106
  Notes: Grade II listed building [18]
An original Arkwright-type mill built in the 1780s. The mill continued spinning cotton using water frames and then throstles until 1886, when it was sold and became HJ Berry's chairmaking factory. It was powered by a 32 ft waterwheel which continued in use, generating electricity until the 1940s.[19]

  Notes: The Haggate Joint Stock Commercial Company opened it in 1858 as a production mill, but reorganised it in 1865 to become a 'room and power' company. Seven producer partnerships were formed by the shareholders who had been allocated looms on a pro rata basis. The companies consolidated into four main businesses. Shares in the room and power 'walls' company were traded resulting in a smaller number of shareholders with larger investments. In 1903, the 'walls' liquidated passing assets to the Harle Syke Mill Company which built a new larger shed, jokingly called Siberia Shed after a delay in providing a heating system. The mill engine which is now displayed in the Science Museum, London, was upgraded.[40]
