This rain-interrupted return match was drawn with no decision on first innings.
Wiltshire had needed to win this match to retain any hope of winning the Championship.
On the first day play was only possible for under half an hour, during which time Surrey 2nd XI scored 20 without loss.
On the second day there were further rain stoppages.
The game between the two teams at Chippenham the previous week had been won by Wiltshire.
