Area code history

Oldmeldrum's original area code was 0055. This lasted until 1968 when the code was changed to 0651, as part of a nationwide plan to free up numbers starting 00 for other purposes.

The 0651 code eventually became 01651, following a renumbering programme that took place across the UK during April 1995.
