The Inclosure Acts use an old or formal spelling of the word now more usually spelt "enclosure". They cover enclosure of open fields and common land in England and Wales, creating legal property rights to land that was previously held in common.

I was taught at school that, without enclosure, Malthus's prediction that England would run out of food for its growing population would have been realised.
