Area code history

Originally, there were two area codes for this area: 0270 for Crewe and 0936 for Sandbach. At some point before the mid-1990s, the 0936 code was withdrawn and all numbers were transferred into the 0270 code. This then eventually became 01270, following a renumbering programme that took place across the UK during April 1995.
