Villager whose family have lived in Kirkby Underwood for 400 years prepares to celebrate 90th birthday

The Wyer family are so ingrained in the history of their village they even have their name carved into the church’s 17th century bell.

Frank Wyer, who turns 90 on Monday (May 18), says there is nowhere else in the world he would rather live than Kirkby Underwood.

“Live somewhere else? No way!” he said. “Everything in my life is connected to Kirkby and that’s the way I want it to be. My family have lived here for more than 400 years.”
