A short account of the blocked site has been published in a CDG Newsletter
The water supply resurgence before the equestrian centre on the way to Solórzano, just before the turn off to Fresnedo. This area, to the north of Riaño, has some potential. Sandstone beds to the NW have diggable holes. The site is an arch, 3m wide by 1m high with a clear stream emerging. The entrance was full of blocks which have been shifted and there appears to be no problem with the water supply pipe. The dive descends to 4m at the entrance and then a further 3m over the next 60m. The passage is comfortable diving and appears to enlarge ahead.
This was squeezed up through in 2002, beyond the end of Rupert Skorupka's line, to a larger chamber which closed in and became awkward. This extension has not been surveyed, is not included on the quoted length and not shown on the survey.
It has been suggested that site 3910 is possibly a window onto water that may flow to this resurgence.
