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.
