Fitzpatricks Temperance Bar Emporium. Owner of Britains last Temperance bar arrested for drink drivingTO Fitzpatrick’s bar in Rawtenstall, where owner Christopher James Law, 52, is at work. He’s just been nicked for drink driving and banned for 17 months.

So as you know, Fiztpatrick’s is the last Temperance Bar in the United Kingdom. The bar sells non-alcoholic drinks. It’s been doing so since 1890, when the Methodist-driven Temperance movement was looking to reduce the nation’s alcohol intake.

It might make a comeback…
