This match was drawn.
The Oxfordshire declaration set Bedfordshire a target of 263 runs to win in a little over two hours.
Bad light caused the game's abandonment at 5.45 pm on the second day.
For the home team Brown took 11 wickets in the match for 128 runs.
H R Orr scored 72 and Pollitt 55.
For the visitors, J F Marsh's 88 included 18 fours and P Rogers scored 59.
In the Bedfordshire first innings, the late arrival of Jeakings at the ground on the second day led to him forfeiting his innings.
The 202 runs conceded by Parbury in the match were joint highest of the season, with T Smart of Wiltshire equalling it later in the day playing against Devon at Exeter.
