Area code history

The area's original code was 0074. A separate area code of 0075 was also used for outer areas for some time, but was later withdrawn. During 1968 the 0074 code was changed to 0695, as part of a nationwide plan to free up numbers starting 00 for other purposes.

The 0695 code eventually became 01695, following a renumbering programme that took place across the UK during April 1995.
