Joe Coleman then saw his lob go over the Marlow bar.
The hosts kept up the pressure and were rewarded when they went ahead on 21 minutes.
Bryan worked his way along the byeline, before his cross saw Jon Gardner tap in at the far post.
After the break, the visitors came more into the game, with Joe White in the Ardley goal pushing Gladwin’s shot around a post.
Marlow levelled in the final minute when Bartley headed home Gladwin’s cross.
Ian Davis nearly won it for the visitors in injury time, but fired wide of an open goal.
