I've done some more analysis of the arrows and I've mapped all of the page arrows to their page number, and possible numerical values. 

It's in an Excel spreadsheet, linked in this post (sorry Ara, not a nice physical artefact for you here). If you want to download and tinker please feel free. 

Google Sheets unfortunately doesn't retain the cell text direction so I'm not converting it for that reason.

What I've found is that the spacing of the arrows appears to be important.

I haven't tackled any of the non 'page number' arrows yet...

There's also another set of images in the pdf, which may or may not be another map. I think it is as it's got another * marks the spot. This series of images runs on pages 156-161. 

On page 91 is the word Stancombe. There's a Stancombe Park Temple (with Egyptian folly) not far to the West of Dursley.

As a scholar and a gentleman, I'm sure Graham couldn't possibly comment...

Ok, so on page 77 of the pdf there's the first in a series of 3 images - all the same but rotated. This first image is a map that corresponds with the message 'Bull Pitch' on page 80 of the pdf.

If you look up Bull Pitch on google maps (as +Ara Kooser named, and +Tom Pleasant linked to) then you will find a map similar to the image.

Over lay the two and they're a perfect fit. if you turn on the Satellite view rather than the map view you'll see the circular drive that is absent from the map view.

So... the * indicates something in 'Park Wood'. 

But what?

I happen to have a friend who works in Dursley.. I could ask him if he's willing to take a look for us?

We think we've cracked the other image too. It corresponds with the shape of park wood.

Has anyone else found the scrawlings of the mad arab in the PDF?

What ho. 

So, my friend has been to the site today and unfortunately found.... nothing. 

Well, no object anyway.

He's had a bit of an explore, including asking the permission of one of the very posh estates to go on their land and check out one of the 'x's on their land (she thought he was a bit mad but he said he was on a treasure hunt).  On that land he found an old bomb shelter which sadly did not contain anything beyond tools. Beyond, on the publicly accessible land, where another 'x' was on the map he found an old derelict water tank (which was full of junk), but no Lovecraftian objects.  There were also some beech trees in the woods marked with crosses, but they looked more to do with woodland surveys than Azathoth.

Unless +Graham Walmsley can confirm he's been to the right place and that it appears the object is missing, then I think we struck out.. 

ETA: Oh, photos to follow

I'm going to be away this weekend for a wedding, and on a training course all next week so my availability to do anything is severely constrained for the next 7 days. Good luck!

+Ara Kooser's drawings (Strange Dreams and Burnt Lines) jarred with the images that I put up. The *'s are in different places. So I went back to my copy of the pdf to double check.

Here's where I make a confession... 

I bought the book & pdf ages ago, but yesterday when I was working on it I didn't have my pdf on the PC I was working on.. Naughty naughty me found another copy online by searching for "Sthakhnr Fgyri" in google - there's only one hit and it's someone's online vault. So yesterday I was using that pdf copy..

The images are different between the two! 

My copy matches yours Ara, but the other copy is different.

Curses!

Compare...

+James Stuart Is it possible to get all the images at the same scale? Maybe if we line them up together?

Excuse my poor drawing skills here - mapping the other Abdul image onto Park Wood. I forgot to include the star..

What's being counted I think is one of the questions. I am not sure it's page numbers. 

Like pg 12 which is the 20th page is made up of the symbols for second and third page.

Story
Introduction

I’m an uncultured Englishman descended from Scottish ancestors.

I have a million interests and don’t find enough time to become expert in any of them. If I could have a direct neural interface to all the knowledge of the world I’d probably be happy, or go mad, or both. Maybe I’d get superpowers. I can dream.

Things I’m interested in include:

Computer Gaming – member of the Hampshire Heavies gaming community, Minecraft, Dayz, TF2, Occasional MMO player, Half Life and its ilk, various shooters, MOBAS (HoN, LoL, Dota2, Smite), etc.. etc..

RPGS – Running ACKS (www.autarch.co), Playing Pathfinder. Also love WFRP, Exalted, Various editions of D&D, Call of Cthulhu, Legend of the 5 Rings, Marvel Super Heroes, Aberrant, Adventure! And many others.

Science! – Technology can be inspirational and terrifying.

Comics – Marvel, DC, Black Horse, I’ll read em all. A particular fan of Hellboy, Locke & Key and Marvel output, but I don’t tend to buy comics, just scab off one of my friends

Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology – Humans, how we think, how we interact, what makes us tick, it’s all interesting stuff.

Drink – Real Ale, Cheap brandy, Spiced Rum, Mothers Ruin and fine single malts.
