Area code history

Westerham's original area code was 0083. This lasted until 1968 when the code was changed to 0959, as part of a nationwide plan to free up numbers starting 00 for other purposes.

The 0959 code eventually became 01959, following a renumbering programme that took place across the UK during April 1995.
