A lifetime or two ago I had a girlfriend from around those parts. As I recall, she pronounced it heev-i-lee but with the 'i' almost totally suppressed so that it sounded closer to heev-lee (with the final syllable somewhat shortened as well).

Not lightly I would imagine !
the pronounciation is probably as unexpected as
happisburgh
tacolneston
aslackby
slaithwaite
etc etc
