Drain blocked because of grass mowing build up

This is a drain on Old Budbrooke Road adjacent to The Warwicks in Hampton Magna. It was inset into the verge after the previous drain continually sunk. The situation now is that grass cuttings accumulate after mowing and are also driven down from the road after rain. They have blocked the drain to the extent that the resulting humus has weeds growing out of it.
