This is a list of the cotton and other textile mills in 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 the 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. Parts of Yorkshire are now included in this county.

The boilers, engine house and chimneys were preserved and subsequently maintained as a working steam museum. It was the last steam driven weaving shed to be constructed and the last to close, and is well documented. The engine house is open to visitors and the William Roberts & Co of Nelson cross compound 600hp engine regularly runs from steam generated from donated scrap wood

Notes: In 1905 this was reputed to be the world's largest weaving shed. James Nutter moved here in 190r[when?] and had 900 looms. Also in the shed with 900 looms were the Bradley Brothers. James Nutter and Son continued weaving at Bankfield even after they had completed Bancroft Shed. 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.[4]

1903 Burnley Ironworks Corliss mill engine in the Science Museum.jpg
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 4 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.[22]
