As has been mentioned many times around this site, unfortunately the site owner has not had the time to do all the updates that have resulted from the 700MHz Clearance programme, there are 1200 or so UHF transmitters in the UK. If you read my post prior to yours (bottom of p113) you'll see all the correct UHF channels for Bluebell Hill are listed.
In addition, unfortunately broadcasters do periodically change the channels and services they provide, that's primarily COMs4-7 and the Local Multiplex. See Channel listings for Industry Professionals | Freeview for what is usually an up-to-date list of the channels and which multiplexes carry them. It was last updated on the 29th April, see Channel changes and launches, Now 70's, 80's and GB News | Freeview for the changes.

Paula mcmaster: According to the post above yours, there has been engineering work taking place at the Bluebell Hill transmitter this week, unfortunately it doesn't say when the work is due to be completed. Do not attempt to retune as this will just delete your correctly tuned channels and search for them again, the missing channels will start working again once the signal returns. If you have already retuned, you will need to wait for the engineering work to be completed before retuning again to restore the missing channels.
