Frinton-on-Sea railway station serves the town of Frinton-on-Sea in Essex, England. The station is immediately to the west of a level crossing that provides road access to Frinton. Residents of the town who live 'inside' the gates of the level crossing attach a particular status to this fact. These wooden gates were until April 2009 the only manually-operated level-crossing gates on the Sunshine Coast Line. The level crossing will now be protected by a barrier system which has been subject to much scrutiny by local residents.
