Rose Mount Iron Works on Huddersfield Road, Elland was founded by Richard Dempster who had been appointed as manager of the Elland-cum-Greetland Gas Company in 1855.

Dempster's consultancy work advising local textile manufacturers on the building and running of their own small gas plants led to the establishment of the Rose Mount works which specialised in the production of gas retorts and gasholders.
