Leading contemporary artist Simeon Stafford was so inspired by his visit to the tram station at Colyton he decided to capture it on canvas.

A painting quickly followed and is now hanging, for a brief spell, at the new Seaton Tramway station for visitors to enjoy.

Later in the year it will take a tram ride to Colyton where it will hang, perhaps more befittingly - considering its title High Noon at Colyton.

The painting is, however, for sale should a visitor be interested in having it hanging in their own home.

A spokesman for the tramway said: "Stand in front of the painting and you are transported into a world of undiluted happiness and in today's challenging world that's a 'nice' place to be."

Simeon's paintings are held in public and private collections world wide, including that of HRH the Queen, Hugh Grant and notable film directors
