Have you fund the List of Cotton and other textile mills on Wikipedia
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.
