Area code history

Bicester's original area code was 0095. This lasted until 1968 when the code was changed to 0869, as part of a nationwide plan to free up numbers starting 00 for other purposes.

The 0869 code eventually became 01869, following a renumbering programme that took place across the UK during April 1995.
