As 2021 drew to a close, Historic England compiled a list of 284 new sites that were added to the National Heritage List in the past year. “Listing these significan­t historic sites means we can protect our valuable heritage for future generation­s to learn from and ensure they are on the map for local people and visitors to be proud of and enjoy,” said Heritage Minister, Nigel Huddleston.

Highlights included the now grade Ii-listed The Brown Jug in Broadstair­s, Kent, a farm cottage converted into a public house in the 18th century. Perhaps the grandest structure saved for the nation is Wilfred Mangan’s Roman Catholic Church of St Boniface in Southampto­n. Built in 1927, it received a grade Ii-listing on account of the elegant bell tower and elaborate marble interiors.
