If you want a comparison area which has very good postbox survey coverage in
OSM already then pull them from the bbox below. The vast majority should be
there for that area and include the box reference number and the front
section of the postcode, both of which you find on the postbox plate.

52.50,-1.95,52.62,-1.72
