After having waded through the english-heritage site I find only THREE at risk in Oxfordshire. Bad reporting on your part.

OK after having grappled with the EH searching system there are 70 sites including monuments and archaeology at risk in Oxfordshire.

I haven't managed to work out how one is to know which of the 70 sites lsted on the EH website have been newly added, and would have appreciated a better journalistic steer!

It seems only 5 buildings in total were added to the Register in the South East (which is probably where the confusion arose), of which only one is in Oxfordshire, namely Milton Manor. The others are:

The Scenic Railway at Dreamland, Margate, Kent;
Icehouse 140m west of Coombe Bank, South Downs, East Sussex;
Dovecote 160m north-west of Coombe Place, South Downs, East Sussex;
St David's Hall, Portland Place, Reading.

On the good news front, Osney Abbey on Mill Street, Oxford, has been removed from the SE "at risk" register.

However, EH has also begun a survey of Grade II buildings in the SE that are at risk (the present register covers Grade I and II* buildings only). Amongst the most notable Grade II buildings already thought to be most at risk, the wonderful Hook Norton Brewery is in Oxfordshire, and is most certainly deserving of overwhelming public support.
