01507 area code
Alford, Horncastle and Louth
The 01507 area code is for Alford, Horncastle and Louth, and the surrounding areas.
Locations using 01507 numbers include:
- North Somercotes
- South Cockerington
Most numbers using the 01507 area code are normal Alford, Horncastle and Louth landlines but be aware that, as is the case for all UK area codes, such numbers may also be used for services without any physical link to the area. (More info)
The first digit of the six-digit local number usually indicates more precisely where it is associated with:
|Number range||Primary area*||Other locations served|
|(01507) 2xxxxx||Horncastle||Baumber, Mareham-le-Fen, Tetford, Winceby|
|(01507) 3xxxxx||Louth||Burgh-on-Bain, Fulstow, North Somercotes, Saltfleetby, South Cockerington, Stenigot|
|(01507) 4xxxxx||Alford||Huttoft, Mablethorpe, Sutton-on-Sea, Swaby, Withern|
* Telephone companies are officially required to issue numbers according to this pattern. Some smaller or newer operators may disregard the rules and use the same series of numbers across the entire area.

Area code history
Alford, Horncastle and Louth previously had separate area codes. Numbers from the former Alford 0521 and Mareham le Fen 0658 area code were absorbed into the 0507 area code (which later became 01507) sometime before the mid-1990s.
Regulator Ofcom refers to the 01507 area code officially as 'Alford, Louth and Spilsby' – but Spilsby itself is in fact covered by 01790.
