Not sure if the Cross Keys temperance inn should be on Pubs Galore. OK, yes, it's a public house, but on the other hand, you can't get an alcoholic beverage there for love nor money. Check it out at: www.cautleyspout.co.uk. Here's a brief history (from the same website):

"Following a jolly evening at the Cross Keys a relative of a local family by the name of Buck was being helped home in the direction of Ravenstonedale by the then Landlord. It would seem that this relative fell down the river banking. In an attempt to assist him the Landlord fell into the river Rawthey and subsequently drowned. On the 27th October 1902 the Cross Keys was sold by auction at the Bull Hotel, Sedbergh, for £900.00 to Mrs Sarah Buck of Ravenstonedale. Mrs Buck re-sold it to Mrs Edith Adelaide Bunney who removed the liquor license, with the result that since 1902 the Cross Keys has been a Temperance Inn."
