The East Finchley Archer

The Archer alone

'Archie' The Archer can be seen on top the Northern Line station at East Finchley where he was placed in 1940. He marks the point where the line plunges beneath ground for almost 30 km only emerging at Morden in the far south of the city. I have read that his arrow was originally placed at Morden station but that it was stolen within weeks of the station opening. I don't know if this part of the story is true.
