'(At) the pools' from ON hylr, dat. plur. hylum . The modern form shows that the original vowel -i - was short and was lengthened in an open syllable in ME; cf. Upleatham 153supra .The country round about is flat and the name probably refers to pools formed by Healam Beck. On Watling Street cf. Leeming Lane 1supra .
