Neil Croft: Unfortunately it's not likely. This is because the commercial operators of the services you can't get decide where they wish to site their transmitters. They broadcast from 80 or so of the biggest transmitter sites in the country and achieve coverage of about 90% of the population. The other 9% that can receive terrestrial television is served by around 1,000 "filler in" relays such as Cragg Vale. For the commercial operators to transmit from these sites is would roughly double their cost of transmission. They were invited to increase their coverage, but declined.

For a more in depth explanation, see here:

Will there ever be more services on the Freeview Light transmitters? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice

Your best bet would probably be to get Freesat. On account of the fact that you are at the bottom of a steep drop in the direction to which the satellite resides, you might need to fit the dish high up, probably on the chimney. The "Upper Castle" houses have done this. I'm not sure about those on the opposite side of the road; they're obviously closer to the slope.
