According to research by pub historian Dave Green, the Leadworks was a established circa 1810 as an inn and brewery. The brewery closed in 1833 and the premises was purchased by William Smith, formerly the licensee of the Bath Hotel, Lockwood. The Farnley Tyas Brewery purchased the premises at auction in 1890. Following its acquisition by Bentley's Yorkshire Brewery in 1900, the name was changed to the Yorkshire Hotel.[1]

The premises closed in 1977 but was later reopened as The Changing Lights in 1981, the name presumably a reference to the traffic lights situated outside.
