The rotation and resetting of the labels isn't a big issue.
The issues is when I reverse the direction. Matplotlib seems to only
want to plot in an anti-clockwise direction. I can transform the data
to be backwards so that it looks ok, however when it tries to connect
the start and end points, it goes back around and draws a circle instead
of just connecting the two points using a straight line.

A work around, that comes to my mind is resetting the label values using
idea from another mail on this list
( thetagrids( range(0,360,45), ('E', 'NE', 'N','NW', 'W', 'SW', 'S',
'SE') ) )
label_values = [item % 360 for item in range(90, -260, -45)]
thetagrids( range(0,360,45), label_values)
and using some well defined (linear) transformation for plotting -
your data to the actual tick positions and corresponding labels.
