On 19 September 1726, Swarte Johannes, the leader of the White Feather Gang, was sentenced to death. His body was transported by a military escort to the Galgenberg on the Galgeneind in De Moer to prevent it from being stolen. Tip: you can enter Landgoed Huis ter Heide via Galgeneind and the Galgeneindsestraat. Here you will find several beautiful ponds, such as the Leikeven. The names here speak for themselves; Galgeneind means ‘gallows’ end’, Galgenberg means ‘gallows’ hill’, and Leikeven meand ‘corpse pond’.
