Reconstruction of the
Hatherden Lane 25-07-2023 formation

1. Draw a circle. Draw the horizontal and vertical centerlines.

2. Construct two inscribed nonagons (regular 9-sided polygons) of circle 1, one pointing up, one pointing down. Draw the eighteen rays, from the center of circle 1, to the angular points of both nonagons. Number the rays, clockwise, 1 - 18, starting at the top.

3. Draw the connecting line between the intersections of rays 2 nrs. 1 and 12 with circle 1.

4. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 3.

5. Draw the connecting line between the intersections of rays 2 nrs. 1 and 12 with circle 4.

6. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of line 5 and the horizontal centerline.

7. Draw the connecting line between the intersections of rays 2 nrs. 2 and 18 with circle 1.

8. Copy circle 6 to the intersection of ray 2 nr. 1 and line 7.

9. Construct a circle, passing through the intersections of line 7 and circle 8, and tangent to circle 1 at the upper side.

10. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 9.

11. Copy circle 9 eight times, to the intersections of circle 10 and the other odd-numbered rays 2.

12. Construct a line from the center of circle 1, tangent to circle 9 at the righthand side.

13. Construct a circle centered at the intersection of circle 4 and ray 2 nr. 1, tangent to line 12.

14. Copy circle 13 eight times, to the intersections of circle 4 and the other odd-numbered rays 2.

15. Copy circle 6 to the lower intersection of circle 8 and ray 2 nr. 1, and move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection.

16. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 15 at the lower side.

17. Construct a circle concentric to circle 8, tangent to circle 10 at the upper side.

18. Copy circle 17 nine times, to the intersections of circle 16 and all even-numbered rays 2.

19. Construct the "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the intersections of circles 8 and 17 with ray 2 nr. 1.

20. Copy circle 19 to the center of circle 1.

21. Copy circle 19 eighteen times, to the intersections of circle 10 and all rays 2.

22. Construct eighteen pairs of parallel lines, parallel to rays 2, tangent to circles 20 and 21 at both sides.

23. Circles 6, 9, 11, 13, 14, and 18, and lines 22, are used for the final reconstruction.

24. Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself.
