Should I cancel £15k Barclaycard that I don't use?

I have had a Barclaycard since 1997.

Ever since the dumped Nectar I haven't used it and it has a decent £15k credit limit.

How is this affecting my credit with other lenders?

I haven't used it for quite some time apart from the odd i-tunes purchase.

Should I totally close the card or should I get them to reduce the credit say to £1k?

I'd like to have some 0% deals with other lenders but I feel tthe £15k on Barclayscard may be preventing me from doing so.

Conversely, is it better to keep the card open given that it is the card I have held the longest?
