The first attempt to produce a list of cruck buildings was made by J T Smith in 1958, as the basis for the first proper distribution map of the technique. This list was not published, but formed the starting point for a list made by R F Taylor, which in its turn was the basis for the compilation of the Catalogue of cruck buildings (Alcock 1973). This recorded 2,045 examples of true crucks, compared to the 450 known in 1958. The value of the Catalogue has been acknowledged in bringing together the often scattered and obscure records of earlier studies, in stimulating new investigations, and in posing the problems of cruck construction with fresh clarity. It has also found a place in the hands of those with a general ar a professional interest in historic buildings, not necessarily restricted to crucks. Since its publication, fieldwork has produced yet more examples, and has increased our knowledge of those already recognized. The time is now appropriate to bring together a new catalogue (containing almost 50% more entries), together with a review of present knowledge and thinking on crucks.
