Was this also known as the 'Moulders' club - or perhaps that was just a nick-name for it ?

The old steam mill was twice afflicted by fire - the Sheffield Daily Telegraph account of the second fire on July 24th, 1863.

"Great fire this morning. Destruction of the Attercliffe Steam Corn-mill. These extensive corn and flour mills, the property of Messrs. Stevenson and Dodds, were destroyed by fire this morning in about one-and-a-half hours. The main building was 25 to 30 yards long, and five storeys high, containing 300 sacks of flour and 1200 of corn, a very small part of which was saved. The fire engine arrived half-an-hour after the outbreak was discovered, but the fire had then gained possession of the premises, and soon the building was a mass of flames. The stables, haylofts and other outbuildings were preserved. Several of the onlookers stated that they remembered the previous conflagration in 1805. The damage is estimated at £5000."

It seems likely that Stevenson road was named after the Stevenson of the partnership.
