This beautiful waterfall at Malham Cove has not been seen in living memory—it is relict from the deep past! The last time may have been during the Pleistocene, ~12,000 years ago (and prior)!. Unprecedentd amounts of rain created this unique phenomenom in dec. 2015. Talking to 2 neighbours who are both around 80 and have both lived in Malhamdale all their lives, they have never seen this happen before, and some suggestions are that it could be nearly 200 years since it was last recorded.
