And you have it! Shelley is quite correct.
The rewording was intended to focus attention on a pronoun as distinct from a title.

Seems to be only the two of us on this shuttle service at the moment. Let's try this one.

The enclosures could suit two, or in enlarged versions, even three Hippopotamuses.

Pental ?

Not Pental,

The enclosure is the clue itself.

Amphitheatre ?
  B 67 Chief Commissioner

Location: Central Gippsland
Not Ampitheatre either. This works in the same way as some other cryptics only a few pages ago. You'll know you have the correct answer when you find it. Wink

The letters making up Clunes are contained in Enclosures.
  B 67 Chief Commissioner

Location: Central Gippsland
Sorry, not Clunes. There's no anagram. I'll just have to come out and say that "enclosed" simply means that the answer is to be found within the clue.

B67, you sure have a way with words!
The clue reads "enclosures"; not "enclosed". The first is a noun; the second is the past participle of a verb. . . . totally different meanings.

Sorry. I meant enclosure. But same effect. The clue is the enclosure and the answer is found, quite plainly, inside / within that enclosure. Wink


Here's the enclosure again.I reckon you'll kick yourself when you find the answer.

The enclosures could suit two, or in enlarged versions, even three Hippopotamuses.

Told you that you would, Valvegear. But I understand. I felt the same the first time I saw one of these kinds of cryptics. Laughing

Yes, Woorinen is indeed enclosed by the words of this clue.

The enclosures could suit two, or in enlarged versions, even three Hippopotamuses.
