Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Crystal Palace transmitter area
Looking at the predicted coverage maps (using Route /extras/404/prediction) failed, sorry. for both Crystal Palace and Hannington, your location is shown as not being covered by either transmitter. So it is highly unlikely that you will get anything useful with an indoor aerial. You will need at least an external aerial on the roof/chimney stack but you should consult a local aerial contractor who has good knowledge of signal reception in that area.
Alternatively, consider having a dish installed and buying a Freesat Set Top Box.
