Luggage lockers at Alnmouth station?

Does anyone know if there are any facilities for storing luggage at Alnmouth train station? I've done a search for this but can only find threads from 3+ years ago, so things may have changed since then.

I'm going to be in the area for one night, coming up from Newcastle on an evening and staying in Warkworth then heading home on the train from Alnmouth the following evening. I'll have been in Newcastle with work for a few days and will have a suitcase with me, and I don't really want to have to drag it around with me if I can avoid it - it would be much easier to leave it at the station if possible and just take a small backpack with my overnight stuff. I'm intending to do some walking and was hoping to organise it so I set off from Warkworth and end up back at Alnmouth station in time for my train home, so it would be a real pain if I had to factor in getting back to my accommodation to collect luggage.

Sorry nothing listed on nationalrail.co.uk/stations_destinations/ALM…

Also as you can see from Google maps it is not exactly huge. http://tinyurl.com/pu65lmp

A couple of platforms and a ticket machine!

You have to lower your expectations of the sprawling metropolis of Alnmouth! It's a tiny place with a tiny station. There is a left luggage place at Newcastle station which is probably the nearest.

There wasn't a few months ago. Has it reopened?

There are no lockers at any station in the UK. The authorities regard them as a security threat.

There are manned left luggage facilities at some larger stations.

There isn't a luggage facility at Alnmouth station. It's only 2 platforms - one going north and one going south - and a small ticket office with a waiting room that closes around 6.00 pm. There's a ticket machine, a vending machine and a toilet - but you collect the key from the station staff. Sorry but forget leaving anything there! Sorry, forgot the coffee van open during the mornings - which is excellent! And Warkworth is a few miles walk away. This is a very rural place! Beautiful but remote!
