Summary: The Dave Milne Way is a walking route in Lincolnshire which is named after a local World War II hero. The walk is on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds and centered on the town of Tealby. The route starts in the village of Ludford and follows the Viking Way to Tealby. It then heads through Tealby Thorpe and through the forested areas of Willingham and Walesby Moor Woods which border Market Rasen before continuing to just south of Claxby from where the route roughly follows the Wolds escarpment past the village of Walesby and then back to Tealby. The walk then follows an undulating route back to Ludford via Stainton-le-Vale, Kirkmond le Mire and Thorp-le-Vale. Dave Milne, the inspiration for the walk was taken prisoner after being left behind in France after the evacuation at Dunkirk and survived the infamous Death March. In 1990 he walked from Lincoln to Dunkirk, raising many thousands of pounds for charity.
