Frittenden Road was a railway station on the Kent and East Sussex Railway which closed in 1954. The wooden station building had been derelict for years was destroyed by fire in October 2003.

As of 2012 most of the building's brick base still survives, and the general shape of the platform is still evident but much overgrown. The site is used by a joinery business whose premises straddle the trackbed immediately to the north of the old station.
