UK Area Codes and Phone Number Information

019756 area code

Strathdon

The 019756 area code is used for Strathdon and the surrounding area.

Locations using 019756 numbers include:

019756 and 01975 codes

Officially, both Strathdon and Alford use the shorter 01975 area code with 6-digit local numbers.

In practice, established BT lines beginning 01975 6 appear to retain an older arrangement whereby just 5 digits are dialled locally. This means that other 01975 numbers can only be reached by dialling the full, national phone number.

Numbers in use in Strathdon are therefore as follows:

CodeNumber range
019756(019756) 20000 to 99899
01975(01975) 300000 to 399999
(01975) 600000 to 619999
(01975) 700000 to 799999
(01975) 800000 to 899999

Other 01975 numbers are used for Alford.

Most numbers using 01975 numbers are normal Strathdon and Alford landlines but be aware that, as is the case for all UK area codes, such numbers may also be used for services without any physical link to the area. (More info)

Area code history

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

Officially, this should have led to a uniform 0975 area code (later 01975) and 6-digit local numbers across both areas. However, BT lines appear to have retained 5-digit local dialling and the full number is required when dialling between the two.

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