Beverley Minster
Although it is as large and historic as most cathedrals (more so than some), the Minster only has the status of an Anglican parish church. It is grade 1 listed (list entry number 1084028).

The Minster has origins in the 8th century but the present building was started in the 13th. It has its own local saint - John of Beverley, who founded a monastery locally around 700 AD and whose bones still lie beneath a plaque in the nave. Full description and history on Wikipedia at
