The Enigma Cell


Aston Martini was, the master of illusion and a renowned cryptologist.

At home, his favourite challenge was to lock unsuspecting guests inside the attic room and await their escape. Not surprisingly, he was loved and hated in similar measure.

Then in 1943 he disappeared never to be seen again.

No clues, no body, no note, just gone. Perhaps the most fitting end to such a larger than life character.

The room at Middle Aston House was sealed in the late ’50s but was reopened in 2017 by the current owners. Refurbished and renamed the Enigma Cell in recognition of the greatest decryption of the last century, which fittingly also occurred in the year of his disappearance.
