What is England's smallest cathedral?
Christ Church Oxford is the smallest traditional Cathedral in England. However, with the creation of new cathedrals which had previously been parish churches, Christ Church lost its distinction of being the smallest Cathedral in the country.

A cathedral is the principal church of a bishop's diocese, containing the episcopal throne. It's derived from a latin word - cathedra (seat or chair) - which refers to the pre…sence of a bishop's chair or throne.
Traditionally the smallest Cathedral city in England is named as Wells, Somerset (pop. 10,500), the smallest city in Scotland is Stirling (pop. 45000), whilst the smallest cat…hedral city in the UK (and Wales) is St. Davids, Pembrokeshire (pop. 2000). . Interestingly, by pure definition, the City of London (pop. 7100), is actually the smallest city in the England (and second in the UK). What is commonly considered London is actually more correctly Greater London (pop. 7.2mil.) Greater London comprises two cities, Westminster and the City of London.
because a cathedral is a huge church --------------------------------------------- More properly a cathedral has a 'bishop' leading it.
I can start this answer off by confirming that the smallest cathedral city in England is Wells in Somerset. Wells is not much more than a small market town, but is granted cit…y status by virtue of its cathedral. Wells cathedral - the cathedral church of the diocese of Bath and Wells - is one of the finest in Britain and has what is believed to be the finest west front in Europe. The Bishop's Palace next door is a large moated fortified building and is the oldest continually inhabited home in the country. However, the smallest cathedral city in the UK is in Wales. St David's is a city in far west Pembrokeshire in south Wales. The city is smaller than many villages and yet boasts a fine cathedral and the shrine of David, patron saint of Wales. There are many cathedrals that are smaller, but are in larger cities or even small towns (and hence do not count) - for example, St Asaph cathedral is regarded as the smallest in Wales and is not much bigger than an average parish church (as it used to be one anyway). Newport Cathedral (the cathedral of St Woolos - or Gwynlliw in Welsh - is also very small but larger than St Asaph, and is of course situated in the large City of Newport. In England Oxford Cathedral is actually the chapel of Christ College Oxford and generally regarded as the smallest cathedral in England, although Oxford is nowhere near a small city. Another very small cathedral is that of the diocese of Sodor and Man on the Isle of Man, but as Man is not strictly part of the UK, this does not count. The top twenty are as follows: 1 St David's p. 1,797 2 The City of London p. 7,185 3. Wells p. 10,406 4. Bangor (Wales) p. 11,173 5. Armagh (NI) p. 14,590 6. Ely p. 15,102 7. Ripon p. 16,468 8. Truro p. 20,920 9. Chichester p. 23,731 10. Lichfield p. 27,900 11. Salisbury p. 44,450 12. Winchester p. 41,420 13. Canterbury p. 43,432 14. Hereford p. 47,201 Inverness (Scot), p. 51,832, was a medieval cathedral city, but lost that status during the reformation. It was granted city status by royal charter in 2000. The former cathedral is now a presbyterian parish called the Old High Kirk. 15. St Albans p. 64,038 16. Lisburn (NI) p. 71,465 17. Carlisle p. 71,733 18. Chester p. 77,040 19. Derry/Londonderry (NI) p. 83,652 Bath, p. 83,992, comes next but does not have a cathedral. Its does however have a magnificent cathedral-sized abbey, which was a joint cathedral for the diocese of Bath and Wells in the middle ages. 20. Lincoln p. 87,600
This depends what you call a lake. Small lakes are ponds. Small ponds are just little puddles.
Smallest 'real' cathedral is supposed to be Dunkeld Cathedral, in Scotland
A cathedral is a church which is the seat of a bishop; the word "cathedral" comes from the Latin for "chair" - cathedra. So it is generally up to the church authorities when t…o make a church a cathedral.
