Area code history

Alford and Strathdon previously had separate area codes. Numbers from the former Alford 0336 area code were absorbed into the 0975 area code (which later became 01975) sometime before the mid-1990s.

The 0336 prefix was reused for pagers and premium rate services later in the 1990s.
