The Chingford relay requires Group B aerial rods vertical, bearing 48 degrees (~NW) and is restricted to the 3 PSB multiplexes. Also it's currently listed for Planned Engineering with "Possible service Interruptions". Depending on the aerial you have, as you are that close to it, be careful you don't get too much signal which can overload the tuner resulting in picture and/or sound breakup.
You location is predicted to get good reception for all multiplexes from Crystal Palace, bearing 189 degrees (fractionally W of due S), rods horizontal, but you will need a higher gain aerial than for the Chingford relay. The reliability of the COM muxes not quite as good as the PSBs, but you shouldn't notice this with a suitable aerial. You'd need a Group T/Wideband if you want COM7 (note COM8 closes at all transmitters on 22nd June, retune needed as channels are moving multiplex - see 22 Jun 2020 - Important channel broadcast changes | Freeview ) otherwise a Group A aerial will do.
