Fire fighters took three days to extinguish the blaze
Restoration of a former stately home near Grantham in Lincolnshire is finally complete more than three years after a fire gutted the building.
Stoke Rochford Hall was hit by fire in January 2005 and the owners have spent £10m to rebuild it.
The west wing of the historic building was destroyed and it took more than 120 firefighters almost three days to put out the flames.
A banquet is being held to celebrate the re-opening of the hall.
The National Union of Teachers, which runs a conference and training centre at the hall, said workmen from across the UK were involved in the restoration.
Stoke Rochford Hall director Peter Robinson said: "It was just a tragedy of the first order but restoration has brought it back to its former glory to such a very high standard."
Jackie Robinson, deputy director of the hall, said: "I never thought that everything would be back to exactly how it was - it is such an achievement and we are really pleased."
The cause of the fire was never established.
Designed by the Scottish architect William Burn, the hall was built in the early 1840s and many of the original features were retained in the building before the fire.
Rebuilding the hall was painstaking work
