The Rouvray chapel rises along the road to the hamlet of Cocherel. Local tradition suggests that the chapel was part of a bigger church that was demolished. Dedicated to St. Martin, the chapel dates from the late fifteenth or early sixteenth century, but from the eleventh century, a church belonging to the monks of Jumièges is known to have existed at Rouvray.
