Frinton: Station lit up by stunning mural artwork
9:00am Saturday 2nd November 2013 in News
A STUNNING mural has been unveiled at Frinton railway station.
The artwork, created by artist David Nash, has been designed to mark 125 years of rails reaching Frinton.
It is made up of iconic images representing the town, including colourful beach huts, the clock shelter, a Frinton church and a steam locomotive which once operated on the line.
Station adopters Trevor and Diana Cobb, who volunteer to help Greater Anglia maintain the Frinton station, came up with the idea for the artwork.
And the spectacular mural now covers a large wall facing the main platform at the station.
The scheme was a joint project, organised by Frinton in Bloom, Frinton Residents Association, the Essex and South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership and train operator Greater Anglia.
Petrina Murphy from Greater Anglia said: “We are very grateful to the artist David for his hard work and talent, and all those involved in making this happen to improve the station.
“The result is very impressive and practically illuminates the station.”
