The natural limestone amphitheater Malham Cove in the village of Malham, North Yorkshire, England, was carved by a waterfall carrying meltwater from glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age more than 12,000 years ago. It was a colossal waterfall 80 meters tall and more than 300 meters wide. Today, this well-known beauty spot is as dry as a bone as water flows through cracks and tunnels within the limestone cliff to emerge at the foot of the limestone cliff well before it reaches the cliff edge. This ancient waterfall was recently brought back to life for a brief period by Storm Desmond that has been raging across Great Britain since December 3. Nobody remembers for sure when the waterfall last flowed. Some say it was two hundred years ago.
