The 'Matthew' from Bristol has been outfitted to look like The Dawn Treader

A little bit of Hollywood fantasy has come to a Cornish fishing village - although it was never planned to be that way.

Due to bad weather, a huge sailing boat has been forced to take shelter in Padstow.

Dressed as a dragon, the 77ft replica of the Dawn Treader features in a new Hollywood film as part of The Chronicles of Narnia series.

It has been attracting a lot of attention in the harbour.

The boat is actually the 'Matthew' from Bristol which has been outfitted to look like The Dawn Treader and had been on its way to Falmouth.

Forced to make a diversion because of the winds and high seas it is now due to arrive there for the Bank Holiday weekend, where visitors will get the chance to climb aboard.

The ship is being used to promote the forthcoming Hollywood blockbuster Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

The film is due to be released in December.
