Assuming you normally get your signals from the Guildford transmitter depending on your location (you may get several transmitters including Crystal Palace) then I can't find and reports of faults and the transmitter isn't currently listed for Planned Engineering. The Crystal Palace transmitter has had Planned Engineering.
Check in your TV's tuning section that you are correctly tuned to the UHF channels for Guildford - they are -
C41, C44, C47, C37, C31, C32 in the order PSBs 1-3, COMs4-6. Your aerial rods will be vertical for Guildford.
If on the other hand you normally get signals from Crystal Palace, your aerial rods will be horizontal pointing roughly ENE, so the channels will be C23, C26, C30, C25, C22, C28, C55, C35 in the same order but with the addition of COM7 and the Local Multiplex. How well/if you receive the last two will depend on location.
