The Crow Hill Spectre

A reference to Tiverton in the Evening Times from 5 January 1980 caught my eye. The article is about a ghost haunting Crow Hill Cottage, occupied by a tenant called Gerald Hawkins. The cottage is described as being "remote" and "near Tiverton". Although it says the cottage fell into disrepair from 1933, I can find no historical reference to a cottage of that name in the Tiverton area. And why did the story resurface in a Glasgow based newspaper in the 1980s?
