If you live on the Bourne side of the Rigeway you can normally pick up the full spectrum of Freeview channels from Crystal Palace or Guildford transmitters. By joining the 2 aerials together, this will then give London and Southern regions on a Freeview search. Then tell the equipment to favour the southern region and you will get southern channels on 1 and 3 plus all the ones missing from the Bournes Transmitter on the rest of the allocated numbers in the guide.

Colin Appleyard: Never. See:

Londonderry (Northern Ireland) digital TV transmitter | ukfree.tv - 10 years of independent, free digital TV advice

Perhaps you may be able to receive the Commercial (COM) channels from Crystal Palace, if you're lucky. If you're unlucky, there will be too much interference from Rowridge transmitter which also broadcasts on those channels.

Hannington could also be possible in Lower Bourne. It was when it was analogue!
