searching reveals that last spinning in Blackburn was in 2006.

'English Fine Cottons', Tower Mill, Dukinfield claim to be the only commercial cotton spinner still producing in UK.

Not had time to research weavers, let alone specific towel manufacture, but will return to it if I get a spare mo.

I am wondering if Lancs Textiles' made in UK is a fiction.

On line sales do seem to get away with regularly flouting the trades description act. You only have to look at articles on Amazon labelled as leather: deep down in the fine print, or worse- when you get the article home- turns out to be 'PU Leather', ie polyurethane!
