I've found several of these at home when trying to clear out old stamps, and wondering what to do with them. The royal mail person couldn't tell me when I rang up, other than that they don't do them anymore. 
I don't need to write to anyone abroad, but can I just use them as letters to uk addresses? May keep one for memory's sake, but I guess they won't be worth much, so just want to use them really.

    A quick check on some stamp collecting forums says they are still valid for a worldwide letter as long as there is no extra sheet included.   In theory they would be delivered in the UK but it does run a small risk of being surcharged because someone at RM doesn't recognise it.

    Or you could try selling them on eBay....

    I would be tempted to send them back to swap for bar coded stamps.  They are the equivalent of a stamp.  If you're not going to use them you have nothing to lose.  I only had a few stamps - 8 second class and 4 first class and they sent me 12 first class back
