List of cotton mills in Yorkshire

Jump to: navigation, search

The textile industry of Yorkshire after 1835 was based principally on wool, but many of the early cotton mills were based in the county and the assets and spinning machines often switched from cotton to wool. Towns like Keighley and Todmorden owe their expansion to cotton.[1]
