As the 2023 LV= Insurance County Championship season comes to an end, who were the teams at the top and bottom of the table?

They went into the last round with a 20-point lead over Essex, needing to beat their nearest rivals outright on points. Both teams claimed maximum bowling points while Surrey failed to secure any batting points, which meant that Essex had to get four batting points to keep the title alive.

But they were dismissed without gaining any more bonus points which handed Surrey the title.
