Cossington Gate railway station was a small station serving Cossington village in Leicestershire.
The station was associated with a level crossing - hence Cossington Gate. Station buildings were provided in 1846 looked after by the crossing keeper.
However, when the lines were quadrupled in 1873, the crossing was replaced by a bridge and the station closed.
