I have become aware that the early researchers and the Oxford English Dictionary define cruck as a pair of cruck blades, not a single piece. Later researches specifically refer to a single blade as a cruck. The first definition looks more accurate to me but I am not sure how to handle this one. I am thinking or working this into the lead.

I agree with you. But whilst altering it, I suggest you clarify - one member is cruck - BUT a pair = a cruck frame. Also, there should be less prominence on "crook." And a cruck frame is of course an arch, not a beam. Dendrotek 13:14, 11 December 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dendrotek (talkcontribs)
