St Jude's for 'Barnet Olympic Landmark'?

RESIDENTS have been asked to vote on their top Barnet landmark, which will represent the borough in the Olympics. The 2012 organisers have asked residents of all London boroughs to take part in a competition to find the icon that best represents their area. Each borough must nominate a shortlist of four landmarks, which will then be put to a public vote. The winning entries will be made into a badge being produced for each borough, to promote the Games in the run-up to 2012.

Suggestions include The Dollis Viaduct; the spire of St Jude’s-on-the-Hill, in Hampstead Garden Suburb; St John’s the Baptist Church, in High Barnet; the archer statue, in East Finchley tube station; Tudor Hall, in Barnet; Arckley Mill. in yew tree, in St Andrew's Churchyard, Totteridge; and the Toll Gate, in Hadley.
