Your aerial installer will have probably pointed your aerial to Haslingden because that is the only transmitter available offering suitable reception. Have a look at digital uk postcode checker and see what that tells you.
If you really do want to receive from Winetrhill. Even though Winter Hill is receivable two miles down the road, there is always going to be a 'cut off' point where the signal from one transmitter (Winter Hill) is to weak, and signal from the other transmitter becomes the strongest one (from Haslingden)

Sandy: Digital UK's Postcode Checker gives a 99% chance of getting reliable reception from Winter Hill.
Terrain does block line-of-sight, but it's less than 10 miles away from an extremely strong transmitter. I would recommend getting a professional installer to look at it - they should have the right equipment to figure out the right size aerial and calibrate it properly.
