GH= 375 mg/l = 21dGH (German) that is very hard water.
Do you live in Lincolnshire, Norfolk or Suffolk? Water in those counties are generally very hard.
pH8.4 is also very alkaline.

Which test kit are you using?

All the best

I used King British test kit...

I have Portsmouth as 16dGH and an average pH of pH7.3

Is the King British test kit "test strips"?
If yes then they are not very accurate, a liquid test kit is far better.
