End of an era? How so?

How is it the 'end of an era'? (unless we're just talking about the specific boats being discontinued)
If you mean it in the broader sense, which you seem to, Valley doesn't seem to be going out of business, though it is possible that they've hit a bump in the road. Or they may simply be trying to be more efficient/focused. It's hard to say.
Even if Valley were somehow eventually to go under/get bought out, that would hardly spell the end of the Brit boats. P&H, Rockpool, Tiderace, North Shore, NDK, etc. all seem to be doing reasonably well.
It's far too early to write an epitaph for the Brits, if that's what you meant.
