That's likely to be subject to database rights, as I don't think that it
is normal to sign stops with whether or not they are in the area.
In any case an actual boundary can only be obtained from another map,
not from the ground. The best you could do on the ground is identify
the finite set of existing stops that are in the area.

These no longer exist. All you need to fully address mail is the
postcode plus the two character delivery point suffix, within that post
code (which is usually, but not necessarily, a simple encoding of the
house number, although not in base 10). In practice, though, the postie
actually wants the street name as well, as I used just post code and
house number on the return to sender address, and got a note that it
takes an extra day to find the street.
