Area code history

Kirkwhelpington's original area code was 0086. This lasted until 1968 when the code was changed to 0830, as part of a nationwide plan to free up numbers starting 00 for other purposes.

The 0830 code eventually became 01830, following a renumbering programme that took place across the UK during April 1995.
