By 1945, a solitary cottage remains, west of the railway line. It is possible that it was cottage number 23, that formerly occupied in 1841 by Hugh Adam. The cottages to the immediate east of the railway line look to have been recently demolished.

In the 1950s, the area was subject to large scale industrialisation. Extensive railway marshalling yards and a large colliery (Monktonhall) obliterated all trace of Adamsrow. Both of these, in turn, fell into decline by the end of the 20th century, and nothing remains of the colliery other than the large ponds which held iron-contaminated water pumped from the pit. The angle of the northernmost of these ponds provides a distant echo of the road which ran past Hugh Adam's cottage.
