A safety expert is to visit Bath's historic Combe Down Mines to talk to local residents and workers.
The mines were in use in the 18th and 19th Centuries
Miles of mine tunnels run beneath the city of Bath - at times just two metres below the surface.
But in recent years houses and gardens in the area have begun subsiding into them, causing problems for homeowners.
A £154m project to shore up the tunnels began last year, and on Friday a representative from HM Inspectorate of Mines will give an update on the works.
Tony Forster from the inspectorate will address a public meeting on Firs Field at lunchtime on Friday.
The meeting is aimed at explaining the safety procedures in place and acknowledging the work of the 100 miners employed to carry out the stabilisation works.
David Dunkerley, chairman of the Combe Down Community Association said: "Those of us who have been into the mines know how difficult and dangerous the work is.
"The people of Combe Down greatly appreciate the skilled work being done on our behalf."
The city of Bath was built from stone mined at Combe Down, but the mines were abandoned more than 100 years ago and are now home to a community of rare horseshoe bats.
