I believe there is a blockage as there is nothing flowing through the drain. Bucks flood mapping shows the drains on the road/pavement adjacent are a critical flood risk. This causes heavy rain to run down driveway into the house and could be a cause of damp in my property. The area building inspector advised that the highways department could investigate.

The manhole cover is also loose so is a risk especially to children as it has not been secured.
