Historic England has added new sites it its risk register because they are at risk of neglect, decay or inappropriate development.
There are now 262 entries from the region on the register with the likes of Heugh Coastal Artillery Battery in Hartlepool and St Lawrence Church in Byker among 13 additions.
Several sections of the Stockton and Darlington Railway, the first passenger railway to use steam trains to transport passengers, have also been included.
Plans are currently being made to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the line in 2025.
However, five sites including the All Saints Church in Sockburn, near Darlington, have been removed after their futures were secured.
Across England, there are 4,871 entries on the register which is 48 fewer than 2022.
It is the 25th anniversary of the publication of the first national Heritage at Risk Register and around 6,800 entries have been removed since it began.
Tom Frater, regional director for Historic England in the North East and Yorkshire, said: “Protecting our heritage in the North East is so important. It is truly inspirational to see communities in the region coming together to save historic places and find new uses for them.
"The Heritage at Risk programme shines a light on our most in-need historic sites, and has a record of attracting funding and practical help. After a quarter of a century of the Heritage at Risk Register, we are celebrating the many places that have been saved, as we continue to find new ways to involve local people in caring for and enjoying their heritage."
