A mineshaft which collapsed in Egremont in November will be capped today, 7th January.
Nine homes were evacuated following the collapse which saw a drilling rig disappear into a 25 metre hole.
The householders were forced to live in temporary accommodation for five weeks as Copeland Borough Council, who own the land, made the area safe.
The residents were allowed to go back home just before Christmas.
Once the mine is capped the area will then be landscaped.
One couple who lived on Howbank Road in Egremont have decided not to move back into their house, as they feel it's no longer safe.
They are currently in the process of moving their belongings from their former house to their new home in Maryport.
More than 200 tonnes of grout have been used to fill the hole that appeared behind Howbank Road in Egremont on 14th November.
Contractors Forkers will be back at the site on Monday (7th January) to put in place a permanent cap.
The work should be finished by 18th January, before work begins to landscape the area and reinstate the fields and gardens damaged when the hole appeared.
Copeland Borough Council who own the land say the grout column should stabilise the hole and keep the homes near the hole safe.
Those living in the nine homes affected were allowed back home on 21st December although some have chosen not to return.
It's been almost six weeks since an old mine shaft collapsed in Egremont, forcing nine families to move out of their homes.
The homes on Howbank Road had to be evacuated after a drilling rig being used to cap a mine with concrete, fell around 50 feet into the shaft on 14th November.
Some families managed to make it back home in time for the festive period, however some have decided not to return at all.
Work has begun to dismantle the last remaining wall of the block of flats that collapsed into the river Ehen in Cleator Moor. Demolition began on the day of the collapse to remove the remains of the property.
The residents of the flats weren't allowed in to rescue personal belongings as it wasn't deemed safe.
The four storey building is being dismantled brick by brick in order to prevent a further fall of debris blocking the river and preventing the town from being flooded.
A woman who collapsed at Glenridding has been airlifted to the Royal Victoria Infirmary at Newcastle in a critical condition.
The Great North Air Ambulance attended the scene, and took the woman to hospital. She is in a stable but life-threatening condition.
