Most of the Cotton Mill chimneys seem to have been pulled down by one Mister Fred Dibner, Steeple Jack, a few years back. So my guess is that there are no longer any fully working cotton mills as such.

The first website above is of a water powered mill owned by the National Trust who describe it as a 'working mill'. I assume by that they mean it makes cotton fabric which is sold in the market.
