House considerably altered in 1974.

(Undated) information in NMRS.

Recent renovations to the house of Wormistone [Wormiston House] revealed details of the early structure, of 17th century date, (including painted wall plaster not seen by the reporter).

A small cobbled area may have been the remains of a yard on the W of the house. S of this were foundations of the N wall of a substantial structure, 14m long, of squared sandstone. 1.5m from the NW corner of the structure was a 1.5m wide doorway. In front of the door was a paving stone above a stone 'chamber' of unknown purpose (possibly a drain) approximately 1m by 0.75m by 0.5m deep.

No excavation was possible.
