Steven's 67 included 1five and 10 fours and Awdry's 50 contained 9 fours.
In the Wiltshire innings, Overton and Newman put on 157 runs for the tenth wicket in 80 minutes, which was a new record for the Championship, exceeding the unbroken 118 partnership between H Taunton and W Overton for Wiltshire against Monmouthshire in the previous match at Newport.
The Wiltshire total of 491 and the match aggregate of 949 runs were both the third highest of the season.
