Area code history

Kimelford's original area code was 0026. This lasted until 1968 when the code was changed to 0852, as part of a nationwide plan to free up numbers starting 00 for other purposes.

The 0852 code eventually became 01852, following a renumbering programme that took place across the UK during April 1995.
