Once occupied by the keepers of Frinton’s iconic railway gates, today Frinton's Crossing Cottage houses an impressive selection of artifacts and archive material that tell the story of the local area in surprising detail.
Situated in a well-maintained cottage garden, the grounds also include a wildlife area and information board. In 2009, the railway signal box was moved into the Garden and became another exhibit housing a snapshot of railway technology in a bygone age.
