More than 65 heritage sites of importance are at risk in Suffolk.
Historic England has listed a number of sites from churches to barns as well as large imposing sites such as Bungay Castle.
The heritage sites can be large historical sites, smaller or less visible areas of archaeological importance and buildings which are of historical significance.
There are 17 churches on the list as well as houses, a factory, and a windmill.
Fortifications such as those in Bungay and Mettingham have also been listed.
A spokesman for Historic England said the register was an "annual snapshot" of the country's historic places that need the most help.
The spokesman added: "The register is there to bring attention to places in need of TLC and by doing so that can open up opportunities for funding. It can also help interested groups come together to find solutions to save our much-loved heritage."

Among the areas highlighted was Bungay Castle which was built in the early 12th century by the Bigod family.
Work was recently completed on the southern tower and gatehouse, but further repairs are required on the keep, curtain walls and northern tower.
Mettingham Castle was constructed by Sir John De Norwich in 1342 when he was given permission to fortify his preexisting manor house.
The castle later passed into the hands of an order of secular canons, and following the dissolution of the monasteries was held by a succession of private owners.
Much of the castle was demolished to make way for a farmhouse in the 18th century, which itself didn't last past 1880, however a substantial portion of the gatehouse and curtain walls survive.
Despite extensive work in 2009 and 2018, further repairs to the gatehouse and curtain walls are urgently needed.
In addition to the castles, local landmarks are on the at risk list.
These include the Long Shop in Leiston, which is a former factory now museum, the cliff top gardens at Bawdsey Manor and Shrubland Hall which is in need of substantial work on both the house and in the gardens.
