Mrs Tracy Richardson: A post code or one from nearby (e.g: a shop/post office) is always required with queries of this nature as its impossible to check on the transmitters that cover your area without this info.

Steve: Digital UK Coverage Checker reports it as being vertically polarised. However, photos on mb21 clearly show it uses horizontal polarisation:
