Andy Dyson: Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be anything that you can do due to the signal path from the two full service transmitters i.e: Stockland Hill (@ 26 mls / 45 degrees) and Beacon Hill (@ 8 mls / 214 degrees) being obstructed at approximately 4 miles or so prior to your location, the severity of the obstruction being much greater in the case of Beacon Hill, (the undermentioned being links to the terrain indications from both)

Although I am very doubtful if anything would be received, but you could try a manual tune signal check on one of Stockland Hill's commercial muxes by entering Ch25 (ITV3 etc) but NOT pressing search or scan, because on most devices if any signal is being received it will be indicated on the strength / quality bar.
