The Dawn Treader

A little bit of Hollywood fantasy has come to a Cornish fishing village. Due to bad weather, a huge sailing boat has been forced to take shelter in Padstow.

The Dawn Treader was a Narnian ship in the fictional world of The Chronicles of Narnia. It was built by King Caspian X and is featured primarily in the book The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

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.
