Keith: You'd have to provide a full postcode to see exactly what's available.
The Gorleston-on-Sea transmitter starts to switches to digital on 9 November 2011 (BBC Two switches off, BBC digital services start up), and 23 November (all remaining analogue channels switch off, ITV/C4/C5 digital services and HD services start up). It will be a 'Freeview Light' transmitter, providing only the public-service multiplexes.
The commercial providers are not extending their services to more sites. See Will there ever be more services on the Freeview Light transmitters? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice .
