Work to rebuild one of North Yorkshire's most famous stately homes will soon be underway - just weeks after it was ravaged by fire.
About one-third of the house was wrecked in the blaze
About one third of Allerton Castle, near Knaresborough, was seriously damaged in the blaze on 22 January.
Now a number of bodies, including English Heritage and Harrogate Borough Council, are working together to help rebuild the Grade I listed castle.
Plans for the building's restoration will be unveiled on Wednesday.
American businessman Dr Gerald Rolph, who bought the property in 1983, has previously vowed to get the house up and running as soon as possible.
Harrogate Borough Council has already agreed to some building works as a matter of urgency.
