Area code history

Caterham's original area code was 0093. This lasted until 1968 when the code was changed to 0883, as part of a nationwide plan to free up numbers starting 00 for other purposes.

The 0883 code eventually became 01883, following a renumbering programme that took place across the UK during April 1995.
