At the end of the 2e Binnenvest we turned left long the water at windmill De Put (not crossing the bridge to the house where Rembrandt was born in the Weddesteeg).
This is called Galgewater (Gallow Water), reminiscent of the gallows here as mentioned in my Morspoort tip.

Address: Galgewater, Leiden
