Marsh Motorcycles

The Marsh was produced in Station Road, Kettering, Northamptonshire, between 1904 and 1905 by W. P. Brough.

This was a typically primitive machine, fitted with a 3½ hp engine, that was exhibited at the 1904 Stanley show. It had flat belt transmission, tensioned by a jockey pulley. A tandem was also shown.

The make soon disappeared.

There was also an American Marsh built in 1904 in Brockton, Massachusetts.

Fred Marsh of Southampton built a very advanced racing four in 1962, and a Moto Guzzi-inspired V8. His work dates back to the early 1950s.
