The Bell Tower at Chichester Cathedral, Mersham Court Barn in Kent and Fort Purbrook in Hampshire are among the 28 historic gems newly added to Historic England's Heritage At Risk Register 2016 in the South East.

However 53 entries have been successfully removed from the Register this year in the South East including the Gothic Temple at Shotover Park in Oxfordshire, Sheerness Dockyard Houses in Kent, and the Romano-British villa site in West Sussex.
